Young People

Fairmilehead Parish Church have an active Young Church for pre-school children, those in Primary School and Pathfinders for those in Secondary School.

To the parents of our young children, may we suggest:

Relax!  God put the wiggle in children;  don't feel you have to suppress it in God's house.  All are Welcome!

Sit towards the front where it is easier for your little ones to see and hear what's going on.  They get fed up and bored seeing the backs of other people's heads.

Quietly explain the parts of the Service and actions of the minister, elders, praise group etc.

Sing the hymns, pray and voice the responses.  Children learn from you.

If you have to leave the service with your child, feel free to do so through the side door to the halls (and toilets)  and then please come back.  As Jesus said, "Let the children come to me"'

Remember that the way we welcome children to church directly affects the way they respond to the Church, to God, and to one another.  Let them know that they are at home in this house of worship.

And the members of our church know that:

The presence of children is a gift to the Church and they are a reminder that our congregation is growing.
