Welcome to Young Church

Young Church parents/guardians, please read this section regularly for news on Sunday sessions, special services/events and youth group trips.

Young Church Sessions:

Young Church is taking a summer break but there will be worksheets available at the back of the church for children attending the services. Young Church will next meet on Sunday 4th September.

Christmas Card Competition
If you fancy feeling a bit cooler​ this summer, our Young Church members are invited to design their own Christmas Cards!  The winning entries will be published as our branded cards this year, available to buy for the festive season. 
The children are encouraged to depict our beautiful parish church, either the inside or outside (free from scaffolding!), and we will leave the rest to their imagination. 

The deadline is the 4th September 2022. Please post the originals to:  Mr Matthew Butler, St Marylebone Parish Church, 17 Marylebone Road, London, NW1 5LT.

School Admissions

We care very deeply for all our Church families. We want to get to know you, and grow in faith hope and love together. We realise the challenges of building faith-full communities in busy city life today and the pressures families experience around school admissions. Our sincere wish is to serve our families so they can flourish in faith, love and learning at Church, home, and school.

Jesus said: ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.    (St Matthew 19:14)

At St Marylebone we take these words very seriously. Young Church exists to encourage and nurture children, young people and families in their Christian faith. All are welcome and we aim to offer a safe, secure and stimulating environment in which to explore our faith and grow together as Christians. Young Church is blessed with a team of dedicated leaders who bring with them a wide range of different backgrounds and experiences. Parent leaders are DBS checked. 

When we're not in lockdown or undergoing major building work, we use the ample crypt facilities for our worship and activities on Sundays at 8.30am and 11am. Our teaching and activities are based on the Common Worship Lectionary and week by week we use the stories of Jesus Christ to tell children about how God loves them.

The Junior Choir is not currently meeting.
