Children are very welcome at our Parish Eucharist on Sundays between 10 and 11 am. During this service there is usually a creche at the back or the church and children enjoy making something creative with lots of drawing, cutting and sticking; which they can come forward and show the congregation at the end of the servce. Parents are also welcome to sit with their children in this space and make use of the books and toys. They are also welcome to go into the church rooms next to the church for some of the service and there are toilets here also. Sometimes we run activities for children during the service in this adjoining room – an entertaining and friendly way for children of all ages to find out more about Christianity and have fun! At about 10.45 am we all go into the church to join our families in Communion, where the children can receive a blessing. We then stay in church until the service ends at 11 am.
We have children from 3 –11, it’s great fun and everyone is most welcome! Parents with younger children can stay with their little ones and join in. There is no Children’s Church when there is a family service, or during the school holidays.
St Paul's runs a flourishing and fun Youth Group! Everyone from ages 11-17 is most welcome to join us in the vicarage between 4.30-6pm, on the last Sunday of every month. The Youth Group comprises a mixture of activities such as baking, table tennis, snooker and some discussion of philosophical or religious ideas where doubts are welcomed and questions encouraged! We want to provide a safe and non-judgemental space for young people to explore what they really believe and what they think about God and the church. This summer the Youth Group helped organise and host an event in the church garden for refuge families living in Hounslow. The parents enjoyed the time to relax and chat while their children were entertained by our young volunteers! You can see some photographs below!

We don't have a Children's Choir that meets regularly, but we often put together a large choir of children for many of our concerts - and there is always a children's choir performing at our Christmas concert! Over the years we have sung an enormous variety of music including songs from popular musicals such as Oliver, The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins; to tunes from The Beatles and ABBA plus of course lots of hymns and carols as well! For Christmas 2013 we sang some music from Handel's Messiah, which had been especially arranged for children to sing by Michael Reed.
Many of the children involved are regulars at our church but we welcome friends and any other local children who like to sing! All children from age 4 and upwards are most welcome to join our choir! If you have a child you you think would like to sing in the choir at our next concert; then please contact Catherine Jessop on Jessops@strandonthegreen.freeserve.co.uk.
