Children at the Minster on Sundays

Minster Kids is the Cathedral’s Sunday morning children’s programme, taking place during the Cathedral Eucharist on most Sundays. We leave the main congregation following the gospel reading, and through crafts, activities, and storytelling we explore the gospel and what it means for us, rejoining the service in time for communion. There are separate groups for younger children (pre-school) and older children, and during term time we are usually joined by the younger choristers from the Cathedral Choir. Visiting children and new faces are always welcome!

Children and Families Events

Recently we have actively developed a number of special events and activities outside which have attracted large numbers of children and families. These include stories, craft activities, things to take and do at home, and refreshments where possible. We are planning to continue to hold regular events based around seasons and special occasions such as Harvest, Halloween, Christingle, Christmas, Easter, Lent, and so on. These will be advertised on the Minster website as well as through local contacts including the primary schools in Southwell.

Nick Harding works with the Minster organising these events and keeping contact with Lowes Wong Junior and Infant Schools. For more information please contact:
