Young People

Easingwold with Raskelf Anglican Churches

Diocese of York

Easingwold Deanery

 We have a lot to offer the children and young people in our Parish of Easingwold with Raskelf.


 Every Friday afternoon during term time our Ignite group meet at 3.45pm in the church. This consists of welcoming the young people with refreshments and having a talk about the good and bad things that are going on in their lives. This is followed by a Bible story and a related activity such as drama, origami, baking, arts and crafts, and singing. We finish with prayers incorporating some of the issues which might have been raised at the welcome. This group is aimed at the older end of primary school and younger secondary school age.

 Family Service

This takes place on the second Sunday of the month at 4.30pm. It is a short interactive service which involves craft and singing (when permitted). It is aimed at all of the family and is very relaxed.

 JAM (Jesus and me 11-18)

This is held in the Cozie building at the Galtres Centre on Monday nights term time 5-7pm when Covid and staffing allows. This is a churches together youth club. This caters for the older age of secondary school and involves playing pool, sitting and chatting and providing them with refreshments and giving a Christian perspective on life.

 Other Services and Events

Children are welcome at all of our services, Church Mice is available at our 10.30am service for primary school age during term time, and sometimes we have specific events for them such at the Mad Hatters Tea Party or the Christingle. Occasionally at Harvest or Mothering Sunday we will unite with the Bootshop to perform a song during the service.


 Church Mice

Children are welcome at all of our services. At Easingwold Church, during term time, we have our Sunday School “Church Mice” at 10.30am. This is for young people aged 3 - 11

The children are invited to take part  in a variety of activities that involve learning through the Bible

[As part of our child safeguarding policy, all our Church Mice leaders are DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked]

Our Church Mice have their own notice board and display area at the back of Easingwold Church to tell everyone  about their activities.

During Coronavirus lockdown, the adults have contributed pictures of their gardens and flowers that they have grown. The children have been busy being creative too. Here are some photos showing what they have been doing.
