On the second Sunday of the month we are usually in Church for Baptisms where activity sheets are provided and we aim to involve the children in the service.
On other Sundays we meet in the Parish Centre for age appropriate activities, aiming to join the congregation at the Offertory - we don't always make it! We have a Creche run by a rota of parents. For younger children we have Sunday Club and for 7+ Junior Praise.
We use Scripture Union materials which provide a varied programme of bible stories, prayers, art and craft, drama, music and games but best of all - FUN!
Once a month we combine for Godly Play when we stay in the Parish Centre for the whole of the service.
Splat Pac (Youth Group) (we made that up) is for teenagers. We are trying to establish a monthly meeting on a Friday just to chat, play games and eat cake!
Babies and pre-school children meet with their mums, dads or carers on Tuesdays at 10.15am in HTC, followed by play and lunch in the Parish Centre
