The Huddle

At the Huddle we strive to create an environment where young people can have fun, get to know one another and explore their faith. We meet at Christ Church on Friday evenings during term time from 6pm until 7:30pm. All young people from year 7 upwards are welcome. It’s a time of fun and games with snacks and time for a chat. Topics we have discussed include looking at God’s calling on the lives of various Bible characters, the life of Daniel, and the intersection of faith and mental health. Contact our parish administrator for more information on 020 8853 3235.

Messy Church

We welcome you to get messy with craft activities, enjoy storytelling, join in singing and share food together. Everyone is welcome. Messy Church meets at St Mary Magdalene School on Greenwich Peninsula twice per term. Each session is themed around a bible story or a church festival, with craft activities based around the theme. It is a lovely opportunity for children and their parents or carers to share craft activities and enjoy celebration time. For more information, contact our Children and Families Minister, Esther.

Praise and Play

Praise and Play is an hour of fun for pre-school children and their parent or carer on Thursday mornings from 10 to 11am in the church. It runs every week apart from the week between Christmas and New Year. Every session includes a Bible story or theme shared in an age-appropriate way, together with singing songs, playing instruments, fun crafts, free play and a healthy snack. It is free and open to any child aged 0-5 with their parent or carer. Older siblings are welcome during school holidays.
