With some 2,000 children attending Pre. Primary and Secondary schools in the Wellington area alone and over 3,000 in the whole Tone Deanery there is a wide range of structured activities of one type or another. A number of these activities are linked with the Team Churches as described below with volunteers from individual Churches organising them. In addition we have a Deanery Youth and Childrens Work Coordinator, Andy Levett who provides support for both existing and new activities

The Sunday club for children is based in the three churches of All Saints, Rockwell Green, Holy Cross, Sampford Arundel and St Margarets, Thorne St Margaret, although children throughout the team are welcome. There is a varied programme through each month, for example in Holy Cross the children play in a band. Different age groups are catered for and if a child is discouraged from going to church because there is nothing suitable where they live, they are very welcome to join in what the Sunday Club do instead.

The Big Tent is a 3 day holiday club for Primary School-aged children run by the Wellington churches. This year’s event takes place on Tuesday 15, Wednesday 16 & Thursday 17 August in a large marquee at Wellesley Park Primary School in Wellington, running from 10am – 3pm each day; plus a fun evening for all the family at 5.30pm on the Thursday.
This year’s theme is Space Academy and inside the tent we’ll be blasting off into outer space with lots of fun activities, competitions, songs, videos & creative makes; and through the week we’ll be exploring stories of Bible hero Daniel who found himself in a very strange land but was still able to trust in his faithful God. We’ll also be spending some of each day outside playing a range of games in the brilliant school sports field. Cost is £16 per child for the 3 days. Details of how to book can be found here....
