Sunday activities for children and young people

Children’s programmes (age 0-S3) are part of the 9:30am service at Chalmers. Everyone joins together for the first part of the service, before the children and young people head out for their own activities. A group for older teenagers (S4-S6) meets at 5pm. 

Below, you'll find some mores specific information about each of the groups that meets on Sunday. For more information on where the children and young people meet, see here.
