At the present time there are thirty-five children on the Junior Church register and attendances on Sunday morning average between twenty and thirty children. These numbers do not compare favourably to past attendance numbers when it was more the custom to compel children to attend. However comfort may be taken from the knowledge that those who attend today come because they want to.
The 'teaching' is much less formal in the Junior Church of today but it is nethertheless there. The Christian message is taught through the plays performed by the children and the quizzes and many other activities in which they take part. Music, through instrumental playing and singing also play a large part in Junior Church life and help to spread the Christian message. The Junior Church often lead the morning service on special occasions such as Mothering Sunday, Harvest Festival and Christmas. Every autumn a major production is staged in which all the children take part, either on stage or behind the scenes.
