Children & Families
We meet every Sunday morning beginning at 9.45am with a short talk and prayer with Canon Andrew and we light two candles to remind us that Jesus is with us and is the light of the world.
We are lucky to have as our space the church crypt which is full of our own art work as well as toys and games for the really young children to play with. Mums and Dads are really welcome to come along with their children.
Our time together is based on the Sunday theme which forms the content of the service upstairs in church so that we feel part of the family when we go up to church with our contributions. We have story telling, things to make, drawing, colouring, games which all link into the bible readings and theme for a particular Sunday. We usually come into the service each week at the peace.
We have a great team of dedicated helpers who have all undergone Safeguarding checks. The safety of our children is of the utmost priority for us. At the end of the service Canon Andrew asks the children to present their contributions. The congregation are always interested and give us all a clap and we have our own children’s area in church.
If you have children from the age of 3-11 and would like to come and join us please feel free to bring them along and parents may stay as well. If you would like to know more please ring the Church Office on 01305 760354 and they will point you to a person who can talk to you. Alternatively if you just want to turn up on a Sunday that is fine. If you cannot find us please ask a steward at the church door and they will be pleased to help you. Our team is Jenny, Kim, Krys, Helena, James, Sarah and Betty
WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOU !
