Children’s Group (Sun 10:30am)

UPDATED MARCH 2022

There is a safe space for play at the back of the chapel. This area has desks, including drawing materials, for parents and their children to enjoy during and at the church service. We understand and embrace the concept of children, their noise, play and necessities.

The Children’s group will meet every week at the same time as the Sunday Morning Service at 10:30am, but this will be in the School Room at the back of the building. This will be dependant on there being any children and there being at least two people qualified to be near children on the premises and available to be with the children. This gives the parents the option of enjoying the Sunday Service on their own without the commitment of caring.

The Church used to have regular age specific Sunday School groups in the past, but recently the unknown number of children and the necessity to have multiple qualified carers on site in any particular week has become untenable. We will always do our best to fit in with the requirements of parents, children and carers as it goes on any particular week. We would like to do better, but the future will see.

We are prepared to accommodate and provide activities for a range of ages. The group does not have any set learning objectives or curriculum but may put forward Christian themes.
