Children and Young People

The work with children and families is growing and we are committed to doing all we can to help children grow in their faith and support their parents.

Messy Church

We regularly have up to 50 children and their parents/carers. Messy Church takes place on the first Sunday of the month at 4pm. Along with lively worship songs and Bible teaching there are games, crafts, mess and general mayhem!  Messy Church ends with a meal together. If you want to find out more contact Darren Lewis at who heads it up. Additionally information can be found at Messy Church

Sunday Mornings

We have provision for children every week at the 09.30 morning service.  There are various groups, for toddlers and for older children. We are committed to grow and develop this work. As well as volunteer leaders we have our Youth Minister, Darren Lewis, who are working with children and families.  The teaching material for children on Sunday mornings is generally drawn from Urban Saints. We often have a children’s song during the service, where we encourage the children to come up and get fully involved if they want to. If you want to find out more contact Darren Lewis at

Noah’s Ark

The parent and toddler group meets in the Church Hall on Thursday Mornings. For more information please contact Sandra Richards or Sally Morgan via the parish Office 01243 536387.


We have a closed Facebook group for parents/carers of St Pancras children. Details of each Sunday’s activities are posted in the week before.

Bishop Luffa School Admissions

To qualify for a church place at Bishop Luffa school parents and / or children must worship regularly at an Anglican church. We keep a register at the back of church for parents to sign should they wish to record their attendance. Follow this link to download a leaflet explaining St Pancras and the Bishop Luffa admissions policy. Bishop Luffa and St Pancras


The Parochial Church Council and the Clergy are totally committed to ensuring that St Pancras Church is a safe place for Children. We adhere to the Diocesan Safeguarding Policy and the Church of England’s National Safeguarding Policy. All those involved in work with children have DBS checks and receive regular training.

The future

We still have a long way to go in our ministry to children, young people and their families. We are developing more groups, Sundays and midweek. Longer term plans include developing the building so that there are more rooms for work with children.  Darren is an important part of how this work develops. 

If you have any questions about our work with children and young people at St Pancras please get in touch with us, details on the contact page of this website.
