Children and Youth

Children and young people have a high priority for us at St John's;

Our desire is to provide a safe and loving environment where children can grow up knowing about, and experiencing for themselves, the life changing love of Jesus.

Our young peoples groups are led by committed and experienced children's and young people's leaders.

We take the safety of children and young people very seriously, and have strong protection policies in place.

We work closely with the local Church of England Junior School, St John's and the secondary school in Stocksbridge to ensure that the students have opportunity to come into contact with the church and its work regularly.

There are three broad age groups we work with during sunday services:









At other times regular activities take place for:

  Toddlers - Mums & Toddlers Group


St John's church in the parish of Deepcar and Stocksbridge takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously.
We have adopted the national Church of England's robust procedures and guidelines. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at
