THE MISSION: “To see young lives set alight through knowing God, and fanned into flame to show Jesus to the world.”
Here at St. Catherine’s we believe that whatever age we are we can have a relationship with Jesus and be involved in seeing His Kingdom come here on earth.
St. Catherine’s Kids wants to reflect our vision welcoming children of all ages, backgrounds and abilities into our groups and to show them all the love and acceptance that Jesus modelled. All of our children's activities are supervised by our Garda checked volunteers to create a fun and safe environment.
Our prayer is that whatever their age, the children who come to St. Catherine’s will be given the space and encouragement to meet with Jesus, not only learn about him, to see their lives being set alight by becoming a friend of Jesus and encouraged to fan that relationship into flame, that they would know Jesus all their lives and so be able to reach out to those who don’t yet know Him.
If your child is under 3 we have a wonderful creche which takes place throughout the entire Sunday service.
St. Catherine’s Kids is for all children before they join senior school and we currently have three Sunday groups for the different ages.
- Sparklers is for children aged 3-6.
- Aglow or you if you’re 6-9.
- Blaze if you’re between 9-12.
We also have a youth ministry for teenagers called EPIC, led by our amazing Youth Pastor, Ashleigh Harrison. The youth meet on a Friday evening, during the service on Sunday morning and also attend some great events and camps through the year.
St. Catherine’s follows the Church of Ireland’s 'Safeguarding Trust' Code of best practise for those working with children.
