Young People in St Ann’s
St Ann’s has a growing community of children, ranging in age from 0 – 14 years.
Our Kids’ Club takes place during most Sunday morning services. Children start in church at 11am and leave after the psalm, alongside a team of Garda-vetted leaders (parents), into the hall. All children are welcome to attend. Children are then collected in the hall by their parents after the service. This is a great way for the younger members of the parish to meet each other and enjoy the mix of games, stories, challenges and activities.
Family Service: Every month a family service is held in St Ann’s. At these services, children play a very active role. The churchwardens are joined by our junior churchwardens (currently Poppy & Jack), and the children read prayers, assist in the collection and participate in the sermon.

Many children (and adults with vulnerabilities) visit our churches for worship, to participate in kids’ club, and for other personal reasons.
Our clergy, volunteers and staff are dedicated to safeguarding all children and adults with vulnerabilities by working under the guidance of the Church of Ireland’s national safeguarding policy, Safeguarding Trust.
For more information, please contact the Rev Canon David Gillespie or a member of our Safeguarding Panel: Peter McCrodden or Anne O’Regan.
