Junior Church meets in the Treacy Hall at the beginning of the 9.15am service. Children join us when they start school and continue to be part of the group until they feel ready to take part in the full worship of the church. The aim of Junior Church is to present Christian concepts and church teaching at a level which takes into consideration the emotional and intellectual stages the children have reached. Junior Church is welcomed into the Cathedral with the creche for the chidren to join their families at the Offertory.

The creche, for very young children and babies, is also heald in the Tracy Hall. It runs from the hymn before the Gospel reading, when the leaders collect children, until the Offertory. Parents are welcome to stay with their children in the creche.

Please note that there are at least two responsible adults with the children at all times.


Fabric bags for the very young or platic wallets for older children are available to take in to the pews in the services. These contain a selection of toys or other activities. Please ask a steward or help yourself.


There are toilets in the Treacy Hall. Changing facilities for babies are available in the disabled toilet. If you need directions or assistance please ask a steward.


Wakefield Catherdral has a comprehensive programme of events for schools at all levels from infant to secondary ranging from guided visits to specific activities relating to the National Curriculum. Creative arts workshops are also held during the school holidays. For more information, please contact the Education Officer, Ali Bullivent, on 01924 434484 or email
