Children and Young people

 

JUNIOR CHURCH
 

At present we do not provide a Junior Church.

However we do have a children’s area in church which has had a revamp and we have invested in new bible toys for the children to use and which can be taken to the pew if so wished.

We still provide colouring and activity sheets taken from the Roots material which follows the Lectionary and the children can work through these during the service. For the very young the Lady Chapel is still available where parents and carers can take their young ones in and toys are provided.

The new initiative – not quite so new now “Messy Church” is now into it’s third year! We still take the format of providing themed activities refreshments songs and prayers.We have seen a growing number of children and families joining us and the highest number to date is 30 children which is fantastic.

We usually have four sessions per year. The first one this year being 1st March and the theme was “Those who we care for”.

As we celebrate our Centenary this year we having a special Messy Church 26 April and inviting those who have been married or baptised in the church over the last ten years. To mark the occasion we are making plans to also include a Godly play.

 

We hope that you you and your family can join us in our “Messy Church” and look forward to seeing you.

Please look out for future dates which can be found in our newsletter, parish magazine and the local schools newsletters.
