Children’s Ministry

The Cathedral community warmly welcomes children of all ages to its established and vibrant activities for our youngest members. These include the Sunday morning Crèche, Godly Play & Junior Church and Junior Choir, as well as special children’s events throughout the year (e.g., at Christmas & Easter).

In the Summer, during School holidays, Children remain in the Cathedral for All Age Family Worship.  The Liturgy reflects our global community with prayers from Scotland, Holy Land and Africa; gathered and offered together.

St Andrew’s Cathedral worship style is Choral and Liturgical.  Children and Young People play a central role in the Cathedral worship.  Please look up the Worship page for details, if you are interested in joining the Choir.

Here is Schedule for the Cathedral ministry among young people and children.
