Cogs - the Children of God Squad meets each week as part of Sunday Worship.

There are currently 3 age groups:

Primary under 7's    Juniors 7 yrs to 11 yrs   Seniors 11 yrs and older

The young people in CoGS join the church family for the first part of the Sunday worship and then go to their activities elsewhere in the building.

The activities within all the sessions reflect our Methodist teachings but are crafted so that new members and visitors can enjoy their time with us.

If there is time and weather permitting.. activities may spill out in to Noahs play garden!


Communion - Share Bread & Wine as Jesus did with his disciples


Methodists encourage eveyone to share communion bread and wine. On the days when we celebrate communion, we give the young folk the longest time to enjoy their activities and then ask them to rejoin the main body of the church to partake.

Nunthorpe church bless and use ordinary bread and alcohol free wine.

Neither you or your child needs to be a member of the church to accept communion but if you would prefer a blessing instead, simply don’t lift your hands to take the bread. The Minister will often place their hand on the head or shoulder, saying a short blessing.

If you or your child do not wish to come to the communion table, this is also acceptable. You will not be focused upon. Some may have already attended a service earlier or perhaps have an allergy to the wheat, so you will not stand out.
Feel comfortable…
 you and your child are our guests.

Parents are very welcome to stay with younger children whilst they are getting to know the church and their fellow group members.


We wanted to learn some more modern hymns and get the youngest of our family involved with music. These are the CoGs songs that will be included in the services.
