Our activities for younger people
Children are welcome at our Sunday services and they can enjoy craft activities related to the worship whilst staying in church.
Pizza at Church evening Thursday evenings every fortnight
The meeting designed for young people between the ages of 11 - 16. It is an informal evening running from 6.30 - 8.30pm. The idea is to get young people interested in talking to each other about things that matter to them. There will be minimal adult intervention ( although there will be helpers cooking pizza and making sure everything runs smoothly) enquire about dates of meeting 01376 349780 (David or Dianne)
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 been set for the 2018/9 the next Messy Church will be on Monday February 25th then April 1st . If you would like to receive details of Messy Church events please e-mail Dianne click here for e-mail. Alternatively the date of the next Messy Church is advertised on the Messy Church poster outside the church.
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.
