Children

Autumn 2021

Thank you for checking about the groups.  October sees the next step forwards with the start of two indoor groups – a bit shorter than before lockdown, and with narrower age bands so that priority can be given to babies and the younger toddlers who missed out on baby groups last year.

Young church

This meets on Sunday mornings from 10.30am, during the main church service. All children and young people are welcome to join. Young Church is led by an enthusiastic and committed team using the ‘Scripture Union‘ programme. There is also a 13+ young people’s group that meets alongside Young Church.

Messy Church

Messy Church is a way of ‘being church’ for families, with the emphasis on hospitality, creativity and celebration. Children and parents/carers have fun together trying out the diff erent activities that are on offer.

We join together to learn about God in a fun and creative way, and families enjoy quality time together. The afternoon consists of several small workshops which all ages can enjoy; mainly crafts and games, but sometimes singing, Bible stories and dance too!

It is possible to drop in for just a short time so why not come along and try it out?

Other groups

Our premises are also used by a range of outside groups who run classes for children.
