Children of all ages are very welcome in church on Sundays:
During the Sung Eucharist, there is a
Sunday Club on the 1st, 3rd and 5th
Sundays of the month for those of
primary school age for teaching/
children’s activities while younger
children are also welcome
accompanied by an adult. The
children go to the vestry during the
first hymn and return for communion/
blessing with the adults at the
appropriate time within the service.
On the second Sunday, children and
families are particularly encouraged
to attend the whole service which is
designed to be family orientated.
****Toddlers are welcome to play on the carpeted area set aside at the west end of the church where soft toys are available.These arrangements allow accompanying adults to participate in the service.
****Of course on festive occasions Christmas, (Crib Service/Christingle Service); Easter etc. there are special services which are popular besides the themed Children’s Workshops held from time to time.
