The Sunday School begins together with the whole of the congregation in Church each Sunday morning. On the second Sunday of each month they stay for the All Age Service, but on other Sundays, after about five minutes, they go out to their groups in the Church Hall (younger ones) and the "Scout Hut" (older ones) to enjoy their own activities.
These is a play area at the back of the Church for parents and young children who prefer to stay together in the service but need a bit of space.
