Children are an important part of our church family. We aim to help children belong to God's family, grow as followers of Jesus and live out their faith in their own lives. We are committed to the safety and well-being of all children.

First Steps Baby and Toddler Church

We meet on a Tuesday, gathering in St Martin's from 12.15pm to eat our packed lunches. At 12.45pm we enjoy a service of songs, a bible story and prayer. We play musical instruments, do actions and are often joined by a large group of cuddley animals. The older children then do a craft activity while the grow-ups enjoy a coffee.


Church services

Children are welcome to all of our church services. 

We hold a regular Sunday school during our 9.30am Communion service at St Martin's, Eynsford . At our 11.00am services at St Peter & St Paul's, Farningham children play an active part in family services on the 1st and 3rd Sundays and with special activities provided for them at the back of church during Communion on the 2nd and 4th Sunday.

Families preferring a more traditional service may enjoy the 11.00am service at Lullingstone - there is now a Sunday School held on the fourth Sunday of each month. All children are welcome!

To help parents and carers support their children in church we have produced this leaflet.
