We have a Junior Church in two groups, which meet after the start of the 10am Sunday worship at the Community Centre next door to church:
Junior Church is more than a Sunday School—it’s a space for kids to learn, to grow, to question, to explore, to share, and above all to worship and praise God. And speaking of sharing…when the Junior Church shares what they’ve done with the young-at-heart congregation, we are regularly wowed by the children’s insights and wisdom. We are a church family that learns from each other.
There is an active Youth Group for youngfolk aged from Year 6 which meets monthly on a Sunday evening. Our Youth Group is involved in leading our all-age worship once a month (read below), in service projects, and also some fun! In the last year alone, the Youth Group

Within the parish of Enfield Highway and Brimsdown we have an astounding number of schools—13 in total—primary, secondary, community, church foundation, special schools and academies. We are very blessed to have an active relationship with the vast majority of our local schools, whether school classes visit the church, receive visits by the clergy, or are involved in our service projects.
We have an historic and close-knit relationship with St James’ Church of England Primary School, the oldest school in the parish, founded in 1834, providing education for the local community with a distinctively Christian ethos.
