Growing in faith through life and love, fun and friendship


What is Searchers?

Searchers is our younger children's group at St Mary's for children aged 3-11.

When does it meet?

It meets on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month in the church hall from 10:00am. The children stay with us in Junior Church until re-joining the main service for Communion.

Sponsored Child

As a group, we have taken on sponsorship of Kato Junior, a 7 year old boy in Hoima, Uganda, as part of our Church partnership with that region.

We hope this will help the children understand more about their privileges and the concept of Christian giving.

Who runs it?

The children's work at St Mary's is run by a number of church volunteers.

Each week Searchers is run by a team of 2 adults who are both committed Christians and DBS checked through the diocese. The teams work on a monthly rota.

Do all the children work together?

During Searchers the children stay together in the same room. However, within the session the children have the opportunity to work as a whole group, in small groups or individually with an adult.

What activities are there for the children?

Searchers activities include a combination of:

  • Worship
  • Story time / DVD
  • Group time
  • Craft time
  • Game time
  • Prayer time

On occasions we provide the children with a take home sheet summarising a few key points from the learning that week for you to chat through what they have learnt and help reinforce it.

Then Jesus put a little child among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, "Anyone who welcomes a little child like this one on my behalf welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes not only me but also my Father who sent me."
Mark 9:36-37
