The United Church Dorchester

United in faith, united in action

Junior Church


 Junior Church provides for children of all ages. We are a small friendly group which enables all who join us to be made very welcome. Our young people either join the service for approximately 20 minutes before going up to their Junior Church session or will stay in Church in our designated children’s area. 

We have a small band of ‘Helpers’ who take turn on a rota basis to provide a fun and enriching time with our young people.


 Why not come and join us?

We enjoy a wide variety of activities and are constantly adjusting them to suit the children’s needs. Activities we often enjoy include singing worship songs; reading, looking and if age appropriate discussing Bible verses, quizzes, drama, Arts & crafts, cooking & games. We try to help the children understand the Bible and how Jesus’ love for us can help us in our lives today. We also strive to help them see the bigger picture and look at ways we can help those less fortunate than ourselves.

For the last 8 years Members of Junior church have also undertaken the whole preparation, cooking and serving of our Family Christmas Lunch for around 100 people, and the Easter Breakfast for around 40 people!! We have been able to donate the monies raised from these events to The British Heart Foundation, Twinning Toilets, Christian Aid, Oxfam Unwrapped (a local charity providing a Christmas lunch for teenagers living in Bedsits), and have recently sponsored a Guide Dog for the Blind.
