What’s it all about?  

Here at St Alban's, Frant (and at Holy Trinity, Eridge, too) we are committed to providing the highest standard of care regarding the safeguarding of children, young people and vulnerable adults.  We do this in accordance with national safeguarding legislation and strict Diocesan guidance. 
We have set up policies (see below) and guidelines to enable us to promote safer practices in all church activities. 
We also seek to ensure that safer recruitment practice is followed in relation to all volunteers and paid staff.  This includes running DBS checks for everyone who offers to work with children, young people and vulnerable adults on a regular basis and/or who has an overall responsibility, in any capacity, for the work we do with children and young people and visiting vulnerable adults.

As part of our safeguarding practice, the churches have a Parish Safeguarding Officer, Roo Froud. Any queries or concerns regarding safeguarding can be directed to them, contact details below.

Planning your Visit

A Warm hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Our Service

The main service in Frant is 9.30am -10.30am.

Reverend Brendan opens the service and there is a mix of bible readings, sermons, prayer, and singing. 

Sometimes there is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.

Church Building

What can children do?

We have a fantastic programme for children aged 0–14.... and our very own Festival Church.

Morning service:

Children stay with the grown-up for the first part of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together.  The speaker will make it clear when and where children need to go for their programmes.  You do not need to go with your children unless they are pre-school age.  The children will have great fun playing games, and learning about God in a way that is tailored to their age group

The kids group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.


Festival church - 4-5pm in the Rectory paddock (next door to the church)

This is an all-ages service held outside in our brand new tipi. Bring a chair, grab a thermos/drink/snack and join us for live music, teaching, discussion, and prayers.No need to book adults, just come along.

Festival church kids

This is our Forest School style Sunday School,with Bible stories around the fire, discussion, songs, woodland crafts and more. 
It is run by trained Forest School (level 3) practitioners. Spaces are limited for all children, so you will need to sign up your child.
