St James’ Sunday School

We LOVE sharing Jesus’ love with our children and growing with them as we have fun and learn together.

We meet in term time during the 10.30 service using the school building next door after first worshiping, for a short time, with the rest of the church family.

We have two teaching groups: 3-6yrs; 6-11yrs.

We welcome little ones rising from three up to 11 – then they move on to d2b.

Parents are very welcome to come with their children to try us out.


Dare to Believe (d2b) is for young people between 11 and 14 years (school years 7-9) and also meet during the 10.30 service in St James’ during term time.

For more photos see the SPSJ Photo pages.


ACCESS meets each week on Sunday evening to have fun and to see what the Bible says  about  life and living as a Christian. Our name comes from Romans 5:1-2 which says we can have access to God through faith in Jesus. We meet on Sunday evenings (during term time).
