Kids for God
Sessions for children in the Church Hall every Sunday during the 11am service. 0-5s meet in the crèche room. 6-11s meet in the main hall. We have fun with games and crafts in and around the Hall, using the enclosed garden on sunny days. Most weeks we get together in our own age groups but sometimes we all gather for lively Fun Sundays suitable for all ages. Kids for God is led by our Children & Families Leader, Rachel Mason and many others from church. Come and join us! We’d love to see you.
Come at 10.45am for a drink and doughnut.
Please note: babies and toddlers are also very welcome in church (we don't mind noise!) There is a side-room with toys you can use for baby-changing and feeding if you prefer. It's up to you.

Parent Chat Every Monday morning during term time we meet to chat, during this time we pick up strategies that we can then try out at home. Its great to meet other parents that are often sharing the same frustrations as we are! We also provide a free crèche. This all happens between 10 -11.30am, many parents and children come along to The Big Breakfast first.
