St Columba's Crosspool

Open to God, Welcoming All

Children & Young People

Jesus said :  “Let the children come to me!”

At St. Columba’s we value, teach and enjoy children at all their ages and stages of life and faith development.

We know too that mums and dads, aunt and uncles, grandmas and grandpas and carers all need lots of love, pastoral care, support and encouragement.

So we offer:

Junior Church sessions during Sunday services on all Sundays except the 1st in the month, which is All Age Worship.

2013 Stepping Stones



Alternate Fridays in term time 1.45pm

Preschoolers and their carers enjoy church, play, music  and refreshments





Fridays approx once a month 3.30pm

Join lots of local families exploring Christianity and life together through the creative arts, inclusive worship and  food!

We are also involved in OPEN THE BOOK, an ecumenical group taking Bible stories into Lydgate Infant and Junior schools, and support


This group prays for all children, families and schools in our community, and meets every half-term, either at St Columba’s or St Thomas’.

 For older young people: we recommend Oxygen At St Luke’s Church Lodge Moor, 6.30pm-8.00pm on the first Sunday of the month.
