Church Organisations

Sunday Club

 

 

 

Sunday Club meets every week. It is designed for those aged 4 to 14. Children gather in the church for the start of the Family Service and then, after the Birthday Spot, move to The Ark for a bible story, art and craft work, drama and other activities.

 

Sunday Club is an ideal way for young people to grow in their knowledge of the Bible and the Christian Faith. A must for all who have been baptized!

ARK TOTS & TODDLERS (formily Mums The Word)

Did you know?.......

We have a Stay and Play group which meets in The Ark

every Thursday 9.30am - 11.10am during school term time,

and often during the half term holidays as well.

 

We welcome Mums, Dads and Grandparents with children

from birth up to school age. A time to chat and to play. We

provide a friendly environment with refreshments and a

range of toys and each session finishes with singing time.

Although there is no specific charge, we welcome

donations towards the running costs of the facilities,

refreshments, toys and equipment.

 

Tiny Tots in Church

Once a month, on the 4th Thursday of each month,

instead of our usual singing time we invite parents /

grandparents to bring their little ones into the church.

Come and join in with the short, simple dramatized Bible

story and some songs. Have a go at the children’s craft

activity, which relates to the story theme, available for the

children to do with you during their play session.

 

This relaxed and informal Tiny Tots service is designed

especially for babies and children, with no worries about

restlessness and noise!

 

So come along and join us, as often as you wish. Spread

the word and bring friends.
