Children and Youth

Family Link Worker   

Sarah Folkes is our Family Link Worker. Sarah splits her time equally between Salford 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 or 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:

Messy Church (or Muddy Church)is designed for children and their parents/carers and meets at the same time as the main Sunday morning service at 10.30am on the 2nd Sunday of each month.

Fresh Expressions (currently not being held) is an event held on the 3rd Sunday for young people over the age of 10. This is held in the Memorial Hall and includes snacks, games and live music plus recorded video clips.
