Guthlac’s Gang is our group for primary and pre-school children.

We meet during the Sunday service at 9.30am.

The activities are fun and interesting.
We explore the Christian faith, worship and pray.

All are welcome
Under 4’s must be accompanied by a parent/carer.

Did you know that Golcar is named after St Guthlac?
He came and preached here in the 8th century!

Firstly we have news time when the children tell us what they have been doing the previous week, or are going to do shortly i.e. birthday parties, trips, new shoes, clothes etc. (It is amazing what we get to know!). 

Each child has his or her turn whilst the others listen to what they are saying. Our story comes next, which compliments the activity for that week’s topic. 

After the story the children do crafts, which they love showing when we go back into church.  . 


Guthlac's Gang is led by Toni Firth and Helen Hunt.  We also have some great mums and dads who are always willing to lend a hand.

We meet each Sunday at 9.30am and if your child would like to come and join us we would be only too pleased to welcome them.

The children are the future of St. John’s Church and it is very encouraging to find that they are included as much as possible in the weekly worship of the church.
