We are a church for all, and we welcome families with children to attend our services, activities and events.

Countdown to …

We are really excited about our new Event! Countdown to … is aimed at Children ages Reception to Year 6. It’s full afternoon of craft, games, music (with a live band), drama and songs. Parents can attend all afternoon or at 4.15 they can arrive and join their children for ‘The Big Show’ where the children themselves will contribute!

Primary school work

We engage with the two local primary schools of Finham Primary & Stivichall Primary schools and enjoy a good relationship with them both. Our team goes into both schools delivering lessons which connect well with the national curriculum and assemblies that enjoyed by children and teaching staff. During the pandemic St Martin’s workers delivered both broadcast live lessons via Zoom and pre recorded assemblies. Some which can be found here …

We also welcome school children to come to participate in Christmas Unwrapped and Easter Cracked in church, These are interactive presentations from Scripture Union to explain the basis of these Christian festivals. Also, towards the end of the summer term we are delighted to go into the schools to assist in the preparation of year 6 in their transition to secondary school.
