Children and Young People

young people in church

We have lots of young people at St James from babies and toddlers through to teenagers. We also have strong links with our church school Sankey Valley St James Primary and our local Scout Group, 7th Warrington. Both regularly join us for Sunday worship.

In recognition of the quality and range or our facilities and work with children and young people we have recently been awarded Child Friendly Church status by the Diocese of Liverpool

Children and Young People are always welcome at St James's, at Sunday Services or at our groups and events. Messy Church is held regularly at Sankey Valley St James School.
