Children at Deane

On Sunday morning

We have three groups for children on a Sunday morning, which meet twice a month:

For pre-school ages, meets in the room at the back of church. There is time and space to play and explore, and story time from God’s Word.

Junior Church
For ages 3/4 to end of Year 5 meeting together in the Church Centre for teaching and worship. We explore God’s Word together and then have different response activities for different age groups and learning styles.

For Year 6 to Year 9, meets in the youth room in church. The group explore God’s word together and encourage one another in living the Christian life.

During the week we also have:

Little Lambs Baby and Toddler Group

Little Lambs baby and toddler group provides a warm welcome for those with pre-school aged children. Meeting on term-time Tuesday mornings (9:30am – 11:30am) in Deane Church Centre, the babies and children have a vast variety of toys to play with and there is a craft session every week. Tea, coffee, soft drinks and toast are available. The session finishes with a sing song with musical instruments. Melanie Higson leads this group.

Social events for parents/carers are also organised at various times through the year.

There’s no need to let us know, just come along!


This group meets on once a month on a Wednesday during term time from 3:30pm – 5:00pm in the Church Centre.  All children aged 5 to 11 are welcome for fun and games, crafts, drama, music and food, as we get to know more about life and the God who created us!  Paula Small and Margaret Rutter lead this group.

All of our children and young peoples’ group leaders are DBS checked and are expected to work in line with the Safeguarding Policies and Procedures of Manchester Diocese. More details of our commitment to safeguarding can be found here.
