We are a church for all, and we welcome families with children to attend our services, activities and events.
During our services, we provide creche facilities and children’s groups where children are looked after and learn about Jesus through craft and play.

Primary school work
We engage with the two local primary schools of Finham Primary & Stivichall Primary schools and enjoy a good relationship with them.
A group of volunteers from St Martin’s are part of the national scheme called ‘Open the Book’. This is a programme of themed and dramatised Bible stories which we deliver free to the schools. These are acted and mimed in a fun way to bring to life bible stories.
We also welcome school children to come to participate in Christmas Unwrapped and Easter Cracked in church, These are interactive presentations from Scripture Union to explain the basis of these Christian festivals. Also, towards the end of the summer term we are delighted to go into the schools to assist in the preparation of year 6 in their transition to secondary school.
