Little Fishes, aged 5 and under, meet in the Parish Room opposite Church and parents/carers are welcome to stay. We meet at 9:25am every Sunday, including Parade Sundays, and join the service in church at the start of communion at about 10:15am. We share our news, sing, have prayers and have craft activities, based around a different Bible story every week. We also make sure there are toys to play with. There are always two leaders from our Sunday School team with the Little Fishes. When we come into church there is a play area, the Calverley Pew, with soft toys and books for under 3s.

Pathfinders, aged 6 and over, and meet in church at 9:25am and go into the Carlton Room after the first hymn of the service. Two leaders from the Sunday School Team run the sessions based around Bible stories, which allows parents and carers to stay in church. The children join the service in Church at the start of communion. The service finishes around 10:45 am and is followed by a drink and biscuits.
On Good Fridays we run a children’s event in St Oswald’s Church, with a wide range of activities,crafts and music based on the theme of the Easter story. All children and their parents/carers are welcome (please note: under 5s must have a parent or guardian to stay with them). This is a free event and is always very popular!
On Christmas Eve we have a Christingle Service, with a collection for the Children’s Society, and a children’s Crib Service, with traditional Christmas carols and a Nativity Play by our Sunday School children.
During Lent we encourage the children and parents to collect money for a nominated charity.
All children, of any age, are warmly welcomed to our Sunday Schools.
