Once a month from 4pm – 5pm, there is a service which is particularly suitable for families with young children. It is an informal, inclusive and joyful time where we sings songs, listen to stories and share in food and drink.
After a short welcome and first song, there is a short presentation- usually a video or talk, followed by an activity for everyone to get involved in. This is often a craft activity but may be a treasure hunt around the church or a walk around the churchyard but always something the family can do together
There is a prayer activity and more songs, followed by a healthy tea for all the children (sandwiches, snacks and a few sweet treats) plus hot drinks for the adults.
Who is it for?
It is particularly suitable for families – in whatever shape or form – with young children (primary school age and below). Those with special needs that may find accessing more formal church services are also most welcome, and anyone who enjoys a very informal way of worship and prayer.
