Children and Families

As parents we are working to see our children growing in the community, at school and with their friends. 

Here in the Parish of Haslemere we offer a community where the Christian faith reaches out to families of all ages.  We seek to offer families the goodness of our faith in an inclusive and gentle way.  There may be lots of reasons that you find yourself looking at the churches in Haslemere; you could have recently moved to the town or are about to.  Perhaps you would like to find out about a family Christening or it’s time to look at schools and how they are supported by the church. 

We want families to feel supported in our community, share kindness and build friendships. Together we grow your faithfulness and nurture your relationship with God. Come and join us!

“I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.” (Matt. 18:3-5)

From new-borns all the way through to secondary school years, we at St Bartholomew’s and St Christopher’s churches would love to meet you.” Chris and Victoria



Currently, we are able to offer the following activities and services for children and families:


On the first and third Sunday of each month, we welcome children and their families to St Bartholomew's for our Families@4


First Steps Playgroup 

On Monday mornings during term time, St Christopher's runs the First Steps Playgroup for parents, grandparents and carers to bring bump to pre-school children for fun craft, singing and themed play sessions.  This is a wonderful group, which offers a fun and relaxed environment for local families to get together.
