City Tots is a friendly, welcoming and free group for anyone caring for pre-school aged children (0-5). Mums, dads, grandparents and carers all very welcome!
We are not in a place to restart City Tots this term (September 2018); we are still working out what is going to happen next. We will keep in touch with everyone and hope to see many of you soon.
Make sure you like our Facebook page or sign up below for email updates so that we can let you know when CityTots will be restarting.
City Tots meets on Thursdays, 10-11:30am at The Citadel, Gillygate, York, YO31 7EA.
The morning is free play; there are lots of toys and a drawing/craft table. At about 10.30 we have ‘snack time’ in the café area with free tea, real coffee, cake and fruit. If you like to bake then feel free to join the cake rota.
At 11.15 everyone helps tidy up the toys and then the children can pick a song to sing from the ‘song bag’.
As well as providing a safe place to play and relax, we want to extend our community that shares life together - loving, giving and helping one another.

Kids’ Work at York City Church
For parents with babies up to toddler age, we have a supervised creche on Sundays. You are welcome to leave your children with the team or stay with the group for as long as you like (we are working on providing an audio link to the main meeting so that nobody has to miss out on what is happening). The creche team is led by Rebecca Taylor- please ask to speak to Rebecca on arrival at the Citadel if you would like to have a brief tour/orientation to where the creche (and toilets!) are.
Mini-Explorers is a fun place where children can enjoy getting to know and love God and each other. The Mini-Explorer team uses Scripture Union’s under 5s Bible teaching resource ‘Bubbles’. In each session, the children are engaged in a range of activities, including, games, songs, crafts and snacks to highlight key themes in each weeks Bible teaching. Mini-Explorers is led by Susanna Rose and Dave Stevens, either of which would be delighted to show you where they meet on Sunday’s - please ask to speak to them on arrival.
Explorer kids can expect to interact with the Bible story and our faith in fun, energetic and creative ways including games, crafts, prayer and worship, engaging and equipping them in a safe and enriching environment.
Whether new, visiting or regular attenders all are welcome. Please speak to Johnny Perolls or Michael Ash-McMahon, usually in a green t-shirt, who lead this age group and would love to share more of this with you and your family.
Welcome to Youth, where we think young people are amazing!
Youth is a safe and supportive space for our young people to come together, and to meet with and learn about God. Expect lots of noise, energy and fun, but most of all, expect to be challenged, encouraged and changed by our God as we seek Him together through scripture, prayer and community.
If you want to know more about Youth - Please ask to speak to Rhiannon or Kieran Scotchbrook who lead youth.
