St Helen's Children and Youth
St Helen’s Church children and young adults play a big part in the life of the parish and are actively encouraged to take part in all aspects of church. We are luck enough to have a youth and community worker Gareth Gladman.
Children are welcome at all of our services and celebrations. Some activities provided by the Church include:
1st St Helen Auckland Scout Group meet in the Parish Centre every week. Currently there is a Beaver Scout Colonie for girls and boys aged 6 -8 year olds on Tuesday night, 18:00 till 19:15 , A Cub Pack for girls and boys aged 8 -10.5 on Friday night, 18:00 till 19:30 and a Scout Troop for girls and boys 10.5 - 14 year olds on Friday Night 19:30 till 21:00.

Sunday Club in the "Ark"
Sunday club takes place at St Helen’s Church every Sunday while Mass is being celebrated. Your child is able to play with other children in a safe environment and learn about faith and moral issues. Sunday club is a great means to allow you the time and space to attend Mass without the worry of “looking after the kids”. Children are supervised throughout and come into Mass for the second part. To take part Children of all ages gather in the doorway of Church just before 10:00.
Jolly Tots is a space during the business of the week where young mothers/father/guardians can gather with the children. It is a great opportunity to meet together with other people from the area. Every Tuesday from 11:30 – 14:30 parents and children share some time together in the parish centre and share fellowship. A meal is provided free of charge and there is a small act of worship/ reflection. This group is for 0-school age.
