Children aged 0-11
St George's welcomes children aged 0-11 to Junior Church each Sunday at the 10.30am Parish Eucharist.
The children leave the main body of the church after the Collect and return for the Eucharistic prayer.
We use arts and crafts, reading, storytelling, song and drama to teach children the Christian faith, drawing on the Bible and the traditions of the church. At the end of the service Junior Church share some of their learning with the congregation.
New members of Junior Church are warmly welcomed, and you don't need to book. Children under 5 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Young people aged 11+ are invited to participate in the liturgy, and to take up roles serving and leading in the service.
All Junior Church leaders are DBS checked and we take the safeguarding of all God's children seriously.
If you ever have concerns about someone's safety or wellbeing please talk to the Vicar or to John Everson, our parish Safeguarding Officer.
St George's enjoys a close relationship with our parish Primary School on Beaufort Road, Edgbaston. The school provides an excellent education within a Christian framework, educating children of many faiths and backgrounds.
The Vicar and congregation members lead worship, music and other activities at the school, and families and children from school regularly attend worship.
St George's members serve on the school Governing Body.
"At George’s School we believe that children are a gift from God and that everyone who belongs to St George’s school is important and valued. Our school motto: Our Love of Learning Leads us to Excellence, describes our belief that every child is unique and can achieve beyond expectation."

First Communion Course
Faith exploration for children 7+
From October 2022 we'll be starting a First Communion course for children aged 7+. It will be open to all children in the parish who want to learn more about God, Jesus, the Bible, Prayer and living as Christians.
The sessions will be fun and relaxed, and specially prepared for young minds! 16 sessions will run over autumn and spring terms. Time and location tbc to suit families!
The course could lead to regularly sharing the bread and wine of the Eucharist (Holy Communion) if children and parents agree this is where God leads them. Children could also be baptised during the course.
If this interests you/your child contact Fr Sam to join or learn more.
