Young children can find church services a struggle, and understandably this may discourage families from coming. In view of this, we have now made changes to the format, and would like to invite you to join us at the 10 o'clock service every Sunday during term-time, when we will be exploring how to do what’s right with Joseph.
The new pattern will begin with a short time with all the family together, after which children may go to the Gage Chapel area in the church where they can enjoy their own supervised activities. On the second Sunday of the month we have a Family Service which is designed to suit all ages.
The Gage Chapel will provide :
- A safe and welcoming space for young children
- A gentle introduction to church and the Christian faith
- Crafts, stories, prayer and friendship
If you would like any further information, please phone or email the Vicar, Rev Chris Lawrence, on 01825 891090.
Children's Church for Nursery and Primary school aged children, each week in term time except for the Family Service. We will be looking at - Jesus the Healer:
15 Jan 'Healing Power' - Mark 1:29-39,
22 Jan 'Healing Touch' - Mark 1:40-45 and
29 Jan 'Healing Word' - Mark 3:1-6.
The children gather with their parents then go off to their own activities in the Gage Chapel during the Sermon and prayers, then they return during the offertory hymn. Activities centre around a bible reading.
