Children and young people of all ages are warmly welcome at Cadder, and are encouraged to take part in worship and to join in with any and all of our youth activities. Our aim is to support and stimulate the spiritual development of the young people in our parish and community and to provide age-appropriate resources and opportunities for them to explore their faith.

Hands to work and feet to run

Sunday Services

Our Sunday groups (Cadder Kids and the Breakfast Club) welcome all children and teenagers. We meet every Sunday in term time, usually in church. Young people join in worship and then go to their own groups.

Breakfast Club

The groups are led by our team of Youth Leaders.

Fun at the Team Room in October - making crowns like David's.

Little ones (from birth to pre-schoolers) go downstairs to the Session House and older children (form P1 to S6) come with us to the North Hall. During school holidays, we often bring all age groups together in our Team Room.

Enacting the story of Jairus' Daughter

Cadder Kids making happy faces, imagining a world where everyone is happy. The biscuits help!

Our curriculum is based on materials designed for different age groups and linked to the topics we explore in church throughout the year. Groups join in other activities including art and craft work, prayers and poems, stories, readings and discussion as well as outdoor discovery in the summer time. Young people are encouraged to share in special family services and festivals such as Harvest Festival, Christmas and Easter. Babies and little ones are equally welcome to stay in church with their parents, if they prefer, and all are welcome.

If you would like more information about our youth activities please get in touch via the Contacts page. Equally, please feel free to just come along and join in. All are welcome!
