Families at Great Hampden

CC1Families with children are welcome at all our services at Great Hampden.

We have special Family Services once a month, where the children play a special role by welcoming people to church, reading, leading the prayers and taking the collection amongst other things.

At our other services children are welcome to sit with their parents, or to make use of our Children's Corner. Children's Corner has some lovely story books, crafts and colouring books so that the youngest members of the church are as comfortable as the rest of us.

CC2Many couples who were married at Great Hampden, or families that have moved into the area, have their children baptised in church. There are local families whose links with St Mary Magdalene's go back many generations, and we are always delighted when new families make this their family church.


This parish is committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of the children and people of all ages in our church community. The parish Safeguarding Policy can be seen here. Our Safeguarding Officer is Val Gristwood.
