Children & Young People

Picture of children.Our attitude is that children and young people are today’s church and play a vital role in our worship and church life.

We have a regular pattern of "all age" services – monthly in Church Lench, Harvington and Rous Lench and quarterly in Abbots Morton.

We have our younger members taking part in reading scripture and prayers and also composing intercessions. They are also involved in sketches in illustrating scripture or sermons.

Harvington runs a weekly “Cross Club” – except when “all age” services are taking place. This meets in the Rectory near to the church. It follows the same lectionary readings that the church follows and uses “ROOTS” as a teaching resource.

In addition Harvington has a youth group, Harvington Youth Project, that caters for 7 years upwards in three different groups that meet on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings. Formed in 1994, it celebrated its 18th birthday in 2012.
