Children & Young People

In Tyne Valley Parish we really value our children and young people. We encourage them and believe they are an important part of the future and the building of our church life.

Our main ministry with children and young people is through our monthly Messy Church services, held alternately in either North Middleton or Pathhead Village Hall. These are a wonderful time of singing, praise, messing about with crafts, bible stories, and eating together.

See our Messy Church page for further information.

Messy Church is for all ages and children to come along with an adult. Everyone joins in! Adults are also now getting in to the 'crafts' with a special adults table for coffee, chats and learning to knit or crochet. Come on dads……let's find a craft for you to enjoy too!!

Each year, during July we have a week long Holiday Club for primary school children in Pathhead Village Hall. This has between 50 and 60 children engrossed in games, competitions, activities, a bible drama and a soap drama - all once again building our relations between our church and the community children and bringing the message and love of Jesus closer to young, precious lives.

Many of the children and young people we come in to contact with have no other involvement in church life. We see these contacts as vital and we love sharing God's love with all the young people who come and join in the activities.
