Junior Church

We are richly blessed with the number of yougsters who come through the doors of Wallington URC each week, and with the care and interest of a dedicated team of leaders.

We are also firm believers in 'all-age worship', involving the young people in the life and worship of the church as much as possible. With a warm supportive congregation and an active leadership team, our children are encouraged to participate wherever possible, and to benefit from the joys of worship. Our junior church meets on Sunday mornings and shares the first part of the morning service with the adult congregation. We then split up into different age groups for activities: creche for under-3s, 3 to 6s, 6 to 11s, and 11 to 14s. A Youth Club for 10 to 15s meets on Sunday evenings to enjoy a wide range of social activities.

Each autumn we also hold an 'Activity Day' for church children and those from the local community - in recent years we have had upwards 90 children and 30 leaders participating an a hectic day of games, learning and exploration.

Weekday activities

During the week, we host a wide range of activities for younger children.

The Holmwood Pre-School meets each morning from Monday to Friday,offering full pre-school facilities for up to 20 children aged 3 to 5. The preschool is thriving, fully-suscribed, and recently passed an OFSTED inspection with flying colours.

On Tuesday morning, other mums and younger children are welcome to out Tea and Toys - which is exactly what the name suggests. A chance for mums to get together for a natter over a cup of tea, and for their children to play together or with a range of toys.

Uniformed Organisations

The church hosts the 8th South Wallington companies of the Guide Association with active Rainbow group, Brownie pack and Guide company.
