The Big Picnic 2019

It is a deep sadness to us that we have had to suspend our activities for families and children during this pandemic. We do not know when things will be able to begin again but do keep in touch with our social media for updates.

Families come in all shapes and sizes, and there are a variety of ways to connect with the life of the Minster. We would love to see you.


The 9.45 a.m. service is a Sung Eucharist with a Sunday School for younger children and opportunity for older children to be involved in the choir or as servers.

The Feast at 11.15 a.m. is an all-age interactive service. It is not aimed solely at families with younger children, but they are very welcome.. We start together, with singing and a story from the Bible, before breaking in to three options – often a craft or workshop activity, a discussion, and a quiet meditation space, all open to any age – coming together again to share what we have done.  A number of our Iranian community come to Feast and share in Farsi Bible Study. This is often a multi-national gathering with music from around the world. Every two weeks food follows Feast.


Parents/Carers and their pre-schoolers are welcome at our Minster play group on Tuesday mornings.

We meet on the 4th Saturday of each month apart from August at 11.00 am and ending with lunch at 12.30 pm. Messy Minster is a great opportunity to bring children of all ages to church. Music and Singing, Story, Praying, Art and Crafts and food – what a great mix! Come and join us.
