Young People

Within the Parish of Dartmouth we take our ministry to our younger people seriously; they are the church of today and the hope of tomorrow.

Our growing ministry to young people is a high priority for us:

  • For them to understand and feel how much God loves them

  • That through the Church, Jesus walks with them from birth, throughout their lives, through death and beyond.

  • To help them come to an informed decision about matters of faith.

Our weekly act of worship – the Eucharist has more of a focus on children and family’s on the first Sunday of the month where our children take a greater part in the service reading and helping. Of course, everyone is welcome at any service on any Sunday – we provide children’s resources in church for children. We are incredibly excited that the numbers of family’s coming along to this service are growing and engaging with their church – your church.

On the 3rd Sunday of the month at St Clement's a
Sunday School / Junior Church meets as part of the
11am Eucharist  for age-related liturgy and then joins the
rest of the congregation to gather around the altar
as the whole people of God.

A number of our young people have recently been confirmed by Bishop Robert and we will be offering classes to others as and when they are ready.

'Family Fest South West' is a camping weekend for families, held at the River Dart Country Park supported by the benefice with several families enjoying the worship and fellowship of a fun-filled weekend.

Throughout the year we also offer a number of fun filled events aimed at our younger congregation, these have included:

Candlelit Lantern Procession
Christmas Crib Services
Epiphany
Pancake party
Good Friday Children’s Workshop
Easter Day
Parish Barbeque
Harvest Festival
Christingle
