Our activities for younger people
Children are welcome at our Sunday services. Sometimes they will enjoy their own session whilst mum and dad worship in Church and on other days they can enjoy craft activities related to the worship whilst staying in church
Junior Craft Club
On Monday’s during term time the Church runs a late afternoon craft club where between 15 and 20 youngsters aged between 5 and 11 rush from the local Junior school at the end of afternoon to join this lively group. – most children do not have a Church connection. The children engage in short term and larger craft projects and are refreshed by juice and biscuits during the afternoon. Each session is ended with a story and prayers which the children really enjoy. There is often a waiting list to join this group – ‘Junior Church on a Monday’ after school !
The club begins again on May 8th 2017. and runs during Term times though to July 2017 . There is a small charge of £10 for each term to cover the cost of materials or £2 per session.
some of the craft ideas
Meets every six weeks or so and takes a bible or church celebration theme. The sessions start at 3.30pm after school has ended and begin with a simple snack meal for children and their parents who are also encouraged to attend with their children. After this there are five or six craft activities to chooses from all based around the theme for the day which occupy the children until story time. Sometimes with the aid of video clips or music, a familiar story from the bible is told in language which children understand.

To support the Dance school which meets on a Saturday in the Church Hall, church members provide hot drinks and bacon rolls to waiting parents while they chat to each other in the Church hall lounge. Not only does this raise funds for the Charity, but also provides an opportunity to talk with non-church goers.
Funds raised during 201/6 for Wingspan ( a charity which supports ex-offenders and homeless into work) raised £815
This year (2016/7 )the charity chosen for Dance Café is:
Every child deserves an education – and enough to eat.
"Our vision is that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education and that all those who have more than they need, share with those who lack even the most basic things.Working together with those who share our vision, we believe there is no good reason why this cannot be realised."
The charity chosen for 2017/8 is Diabetes UK with particular focus on children struggling with Diabetes
