Children’s Church meets during the 10am service on Sunday mornings. During the first hymn, the children go to the Old School Room behind the Church for worship, a story and activities. The worship includes lots of opportunity for prayer and reflection and usually includes a song or two. We then have a story or explore a theme, followed by activities which may include drama, artwork, creative activities and games.
We try and give the children as much choice as possible and we aim to provide something for all ages, with toys and books available for the youngest members of the group. Sometimes we might watch a DVD or go to the Vicarage garden to play some games. We return to Church in time to go to the altar rail with the rest of the congregation to receive a blessing or communion. We meet on most Sundays throughout the year, including the long summer holiday although the format does change slightly.
Parents/carers are welcome to come to the Old School Room with their children (under 4 year olds need to be accompanied by an adult), or they can stay in the Church service. The people who lead the children’s work have all been police (CRB) checked.
If you would like to know more, please contact Annie Barker, our Children and Families Worker, on (01865) 882867. She would be happy to have a chat with you.
