We have a range of activities for children under 12 years old.

Pre-school - age 2-4 

We offer two sessions for tots and their parents or carers.

  • Twiglets - Term-time Thursdays, 13.15-14.45, St John's Church Hall

A relaxed and fun-filled session of play and learning, with a chance to chat and make friends. We all join in a variety of craft activities, songs and games to fit the day’s theme linked to a Bible story. We also have drinks and biscuits. All are welcome.

  •  Taylor Toddlers - Term-time Wednesdays, 10.00-11.30, Grace Taylor Hall (at the junction of Lucy Avenue and Grace Taylor Mews CT19 5UH)   Babies, toddlers and pre-school children play together. Parents and carers enjoy a cup of coffee and a friendly chat. All welcome.


In School - age 5-11

People from St John's are involved in all kinds of activities in two local schools, Folkestone Primary Academy and Mundella Primary School. Both these schools use our church for special services. We also visit them to conduct school assemblies and, as part of a national scheme for helping young children learn some key Bible stories, we Open the Book and tell the stories by acting them out in costume.


After School - age 5-11

  • Shooting Stars - Term-time Wednesdays, 15:30 - 16:45, St John's Church Hall Lively games, a story and some craft - a chance to let off steam, make friends and have fun. ‚Äč
