Marlpool United Reformed Church
Youth & Children's Activities
At Marlpool we have a
thriving Junior church. Currently there up to 6 children who regularly take
part in services. The current age range is from 7 to 16. The children
stay in church for about 20 minutes at the beginning of morning services when
they sing hymns, join in with prayers and have a children's story. There is a
box of toys available for very young children who tend to play in the corner
during this period. The children then leave to enjoy group work with Junior
We host local schools for festival activities as well as Craft and holiday clubs during all School Holidays. Holiday Clubs are supported by Fareshare and breakfast and lunch are provided free of charge.
Marlpool has received a Child Friendly Church Award from the URC and this has recently been renewed. Children are a priority as they are the present and the future of the Christian Church and Christian work.
Some of our worship leaders also lead Assemblies in local schools.
