Community at St. Alban's Church, Offerton
    in the Church of England - Diocese of Chester

    St. Alban's is not just a building- it's a living community made up of people of all
    ages and backgrounds. There is lots going on in the parish throughout the year.


Children and young people

Children and young people are valued members of our Christian community, and are very warmly welcomed to the church. St. Alban's is particularly concerned with reaching out to young people to help them in their spiritual development. In addition to uniformed groups, St. Alban's also has growing links with local primary schools.

In terms of worship, St. Alban's offers a Sunday club, in which young children can encounter God on their level, and which meets the spiritual needs of the younger members of the congregation. There is also a "Babies and Tots" group which meets on Thursday mornings and afternoons (click here for details). Children are very welcome in the church for worship and they have their own special illustrated service booklets to help them to follow the service. Younger children are invited to take part in "Messy Church"- a fun and creative session that happens alongside the main Sunday service.

Throughout the year, there are special events particularly designed to help children and young people to explore themes such as justice, discipleship and the Christian faith itself.

We also run a bigger "Messy Church" session on the 1st Saturday of every month, 3.30pm-5.30pm- fun, games, songs, activities and food for 4-11 year olds and their carers, to which all are welcome

We also run a Storytime Service; a bedtime story and song for 0-11 year olds and their carers. Takes place every Sunday evening a 6pm, followed by hot chocolate and marshmallows!

Older children can find a space to express their creativity in music, writing, singing and other skills at a special new "TAG" (Teens and God) service, every Sunday from 4 - 5pm. All 11-16 year olds welcome.
