Join us from 1:15 pm in the Church for a short service - followed by refreshments in the Hall.

What is the format for the service?

The format is similar to a normal Church service, but a mini version, which is in a style appropriate for little ones. There are songs, a story / talk and prayers, all condensed into 30 minutes.

Why have a service for 0-5 year olds?

Our aim is that the children (and indeed adults) become comfortable and familiar with Church, and that through simple messages everyone learns more about God and the Christian faith. We’d like to help parents start their children on their Christian journey, particularly those recently baptised, and this session is an opportunity for parents with young families and carers to be supported and support one another.
