Sunday Club

Sunday club is a fun place for your children to learn about the wonderful God of the Bible while you enjoy the Sunday morning service.

Sessions typically include, a sharing time and a mix of: songs, games, Bible story and crafts.

When possible we will meet face to face (with Covid related measures in place) - in the Nursling and Rownhams Community Centre,
31 Horns Drove,
Rownhams, Southampton, SO16 8AH
whilst the 10 o clock morning service takes place. Because of Covid restrictions, sign up has to be through a booking system.

When face to face meetings are not possible we are sending out resources to be used at home and using zoom to meet after St John’s morning service.

If you would like to be kept up to date with what is happening with Sunday Club please send your contact details to

Messy Church

Messy Church is a great way to enjoy exploring the Bible and being all age Church together in an engaging fun way.

There are lots of hands on activities and creative crafts (some are even edible), followed by a short celebration and if that isn’t enough you don’t even have to cook dinner when you get home, as a shared meal is all part of Messy Church.

At Messy church responsible adult(s) stays with the child(ren) to enjoy the session together.

In the current Covid situation - We are issuing packs for people to use at home and are doing a short Messy zoom event at 5-5.30pm on the second Friday of each month. To join us please send your contact details to along with the names and ages of your participating children.

When we restart face to face meetings we will update our meeting information.

We have two local Church Schools which we work with.  They are St John's Rownhams and Nursling Primary School
