  Our activities for younger people  

Sunday Worship

Children are welcome at our Sunday services and they can enjoy craft activities related to the worship whilst staying in church.

The following are our normal activities which have been unfortunately had to be  suspended during the Coronavirus pandemic

 Messy Church

Meets every month (usually the last Monday in the month) from September through to July. Messy Church takes a bible or church celebration theme. Messy Church starts at 3.30pm after school has ended and begins with a simple snack meal for children and their parents, who are also encouraged to attend with their children. A story from the bible or other source precedes the opportunity to take part in  five or six craft activities to choose from, all based around the theme for the day. Sometimes with the aid of video clips or music, a familiar story from the bible is told in language and pictures which children can understand told by an experienced teacher. Children are encouraged to take part in the story telling where appropriate.

 Dates have been set for the 2019/20 the next Messy Church will be on Monday September 23rd . If you would like to receive details of Messy Church events please e-mail Dianne click here for e-mail.

   Dance Café

To support the Dance  school which meets on a Saturday in the Church Hall, church members provide hot drinks and bacon rolls for 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.
