A crèche is available during the morning service for Pre-school children and takes place in the upstairs room above the entrance foyer. Staff are on hand to look after your children, or you may remain with your child and still watch the service on a monitor in this room.
This group is available for School age children (Reception to year 6), during the morning service. After a time of worship all together in church, there is usually a break in the service at which point children go out to the back hall to enjoy stories and activities designed for their level of understanding.
A small group of children continue to meet on Sunday afternoons from 2.00-3.00 PM in the back hall for Bible stories and activities.
Parent and Toddler
The Parent and Toddler Group is held in the hall at the back of the Church every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month (school term-time only). The sessions run from 10.00 – 11.30 am. All pre-school children are welcome to come along.
Parents/grandparents/carers can relax and enjoy a chat with a cup of tea or coffee while the children play. We have a wide selection of toys and equipment including table based activities such as jigsaw puzzles, books and drawing materials. There is also a selection of ride-on toys and push along toys for those that like to be more active. An enclosed area is set up for the babies with soft rugs and baby gyms to lie on, along with plenty of soft toys and rattles etc. The hall is fully carpeted.
During each session, there is an organized craft activity for the children, and they are all invited to sit together at the table to complete their craft. After craft time, refreshments are served to the children, and we celebrate any birthdays. There is then time to play once again until home-time.
We have some special events planned each year, including a themed summer picnic in July. Our Christmas session usually includes a visit from Father Christmas! We also take part in the “Children’s Christmas Celebration” on a Sunday in December, by putting on a very short and simple play. This is always a lovely occasion that the whole family can come along to.
Frog club runs on Thursday evenings from 6.15 to 7.30 (during term time) and is for all school Children until they reach High School age at which point they become eligible for Hyped (see Youth Section).
Frog club is attended by many of the local children in the village. A typical evening involves games Bible stories and craft activities.
