Children & Young People

Due to current advice from the Church of England, and in line with Government advice, all public worship and group meetings in person have been paused until further notice.  This includes ALL of our childrens and youth groups.

Howver, we are still here to support you, and also to keep you all in our prayers.

Here are some resources to download that you might find useful if you have children at home, and wish to pray together, have some family worship time or tell stories of Jesus.

  • This great resource pack from the Diocese of York which has activities for Holy Week – starting on Palm Sunday and culminating on Easter Sunday.  If you decide to make an Easter Garden – post  a picture of it on our Facebook page, and the best ones might make it into our Easter Sunday service online.

“Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.” Mark  9:37


Across the Bramham Benefice we love to see people of all ages growing in faith and this includes children and young people. With regular children’s groups, holiday club, and seasonal events, we hope we offer something for everyone!

Please see details below of our groups and activities

Kate Kennedy – Children’s and Youth Work Coordinator.

Due to the current situation with the Corona Virus outbreak, the Church of England advice is to not hold any services or meetings.  This means that unfortunately all of our groups for children and young people will be suspended, including the Easter Holiday Club.

Here are some resources that you might find useful if you are self isolating and have children at home, and wish to pray together or tell stories of Jesus.

St Mary’s church is open daily, and is a large open space, where you are welcome to visit for quiet time, prayer or just to come to for a walk out with your children if they are staying home.

God Bless you all

Holiday Club
