Here’s what happens when we can meet in Church

Praise songs, prayers and refreshments for pre-schoolers and their carers. Every Thursday at 1.30pm in the Church. For more information please contact Alison Hoyle on 01200 424622.  As a guide children’s church might have four mothers and five children (from 7mths – 3yrs) and 3-4 adult volunteers.

At Children’s Church:

  • We provide for participants of all ages, from children as young as a few months up to their accompanying adult
  • There is a clear spiritual content which is child-friendly and fun
  • There is opportunity for mothers and carers to socialise

‘Godly Play is what its founder Jerome Berryman calls his interpretation of Montessori religious education. There are various useful websites to explore – is one.

Alison, who runs the group said “How Children’s Church will develop we don’t know. We just have to run with it and see. Somehow I think it’s not us in charge. I am back to the ‘hidden’ third person in the relationship…….’God moves in mysterious ways, his wonders to perform’. Amen, to that.
