For Families

Especially for families

Our Benefice offers something for everyone, whatever their age, with each church holding an All-age service at some point during each month.

Forest Church

Forest Church is open to anybody of any age at all who would like to learn more about God’s wonderful world. Recent events include a bat walk, with experts and bat detectors; River dipping with a local river expert; and identifying wild flowers and fauna of the churchyard. December will see us star-gazing with telescopes! All activities are outdoors, so dress appropriately! The good news is that we have recently introduced hot chocolate to round off the sessions! Please see the St Mark’s, Dolphinholme page for further details.

Sunday School

Our church Sunday schools cater for all ages and provide a varied programme of activities and stories from the Bible that help your child to discover what it means to be a follower of Jesus. See the individual church pages for further details.

Confirmation Classes

A Benefice Confirmation Service takes place each year. If you know somebody who is interested in being confirmed then please contact us.


Baptisms are encouraged within the Benefice. Please see our Baptism page for further details.
