Children and Families

Sunday mornings

We warmly welcome children and young people to our services. We all meet together in the church sanctuary at 10.30am for 10 or 15 minutes of worship all together, then the children and young people go to their own Junior Church sessions elsewhere in the building. We also offer a crèche for the 'under 3s'. 

 

Thirsty Thursdays after-school group

Every Thursday in term time from 3.15 - 4.30pm, for school children up to Year 4 (and their parent or carer). We meet in the Bradbury Hall which is on the upper floor of our church building, so there is plenty of space for games and other activities, including a 'Godly Play' storytelling slot. Please contact Deacon Gill for more details. (See Key Contacts page.)

Messy Church

10am - 12.30pm, one session during each school holiday. 

If it's half-term and you are looking for something to do with the children, Messy Church always delivers. Imagine 10 tables of crafts with glitter, glue, paint - messy stuff indeed! In the first hour you and your children work together to make beautiful works of art - the kind worthy of the fridge door! Then it’s downstairs to the sanctuary where we sing, share, and learn some important life stuff in a very fun way. While this is happening, the fantastic mess upstairs disappears and a yummy lunch is ready and waiting for you and your family to enjoy.

 

There is no set charge for Messy Church though donations are welcome.  Look for the date of the next Messy Church on the Events page. 

 

Wendy House Toddler Group (not running at present)

We hope that we will soon be in a position to resume our toddler group. Pre-pandemic we held this on Thursdays in term time from 10am to 11.30am.

Bring your toddler to play with our toys and to meet other young children while you chat, have coffee and biscuits and enjoy watching your child at play. There is a small charge per session.
