Youth Work

There are a number of initiatives within our parishes to spread God's word out to children and young people.  These can be explored in more detail on the various tabs from here.

All Age services

Specific services, designed to be easily accessible to everyone, are provided at Gwennap and Stithians, although we should point out that children and families are welcome at ALL our services. Children are encouraged to take part wherever possible and nobody will mind if a baby cries or a child calls out an untimely heckle!

Children's Resources

Whether the service is designed with children in mind or not, we try and ensure that there is always something for them to do. We provide resources for each week to tie in with the readings of the day. These resources are put up on our website as well so you can always tap into them when the children are getting bored! Special resources are also added for special times of the year....

Open the Book

Some of our churches have "Open the Book" teams who regularly visit their local primary school and bring Bible stories to life for the children at assembly time. These are often organised jointly with our Methodist friends.

Messy Church

Two of our churches run regular "Messy Church" for local families.  This is a popular innovation which is currently growing. It is often organised jointly with our friends at the Methodist chapels.

Connection with schools

We have regular contact with all the primary schools within our area including Cusgarne, Chacewater, St Day and Stithians.  This may be through assemblies, open the book, festivals or after school clubs.    

Other Youth Work

If you know of anything missing, or can think of suggestions which could be tried, we are always open to new ideas.  Please let us know via the "contact us" page.
