St Edmund of Canterbury, Hayes

Sunday groups




Our Sunday Schools meet every Sunday except for the second Sunday of the month when we all join together in our Youth Sunday Eucharist.

We all begin our worship together and then children leave just before the first reading, moving into the church hall for about 35 minutes, during the Gospel and Sermon.

The children are divided into three groups

  •   BUBBLES for ages 2 – 5
  •   SPLASH for ages 6 – 8
  •  XSTREAM for ages 9-12

Each group takes part in a variety of activities.

The children return to the main service to rejoin their parents or carers during the exchanging of the Peace and all then worship together for the remainder of the service.



Held on the Second Sunday of the month, we all stay in the church for a youth Eucharist and this includes a presentation by the children or an interactive sermon that is linked in with the reading and Gospel.  The service ends with a lively hymn and the accompaniment of homemade instruments.
