Hello everyone! This page is for everyone who is young or young at heart! Don’t forget that on the first Sunday of each month there is a family service at 10.30am at Shillingstone Church (outside on the church field if the weather is good).




This is a club for children aged 8 – 13 and runs every Sunday at Okeford Fitzpaine Church from 4.30 – 5.30 PM.

There are age appropriate games, quizzes, craft and a Bible story. Younger/older children can often be accommodated too but please check with Steve first on 01258 450931.

Youth group


This club is for young people in years 6 – 10 (aged 10 – 14) and meets every last Thursday of the month 7 – 8.30pm at the Shillingstone Church Centre.

Activities include: table tennis, air hockey, games, crafts, cooking, chatting, and having a good time. There is no cost for a regular session (we may ask for a contribution for special activities).

There are five schools in our Benefice: three Church of England VA Primary Schools, one special school for severely autistic children and an independent prep school for girls. The village churches have close links with all the schools and the ministry team and parishioners support the schools in a variety of ways.
