Children and Youth

Family Link Worker  

Sarah Folkes is our Family Link Worker. Sarah splits her time equally between St Matthew's church and the two schools in our parish - Salford Priors Academy and Dunnington First School, building relationships with academy staff, pupils, parents and the wider community in Salford Priors. She also arranges Messy and Muddy Church at St Matthew's,  and organises Sunday morning activities for children, together with helping at Family Services on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month. 



Activities for children and young people:

Muddy Church is designed for children and their parents/carers and meets outside in the Churchyard at the same time as the main Sunday morning service at 10.30am on the 2nd Sunday of each month. A Messy Church is also organised from time to time.

There is a group of slightly older children (7-11 year olds) which meets on 2nd Sunday morning and 4th Sunday evening for activities, food and thought!
