Chritmas play

(December 2016)

Dianne V, our Children's Church Convenor, wrote a most enjoyable Christmas Drama from the perspective of onlooking angels. Jethro and Daniel performed their parts with great verve and it was appreciated by all. Thanks Dianne for all the excellent work you have done with the children.

2017 has seen us moving to all age services so children are catered for and included in our regular services. This is in line with the wishes of the parents involved and after discussion with the elders.

Every Sunday in term-time we provide a special programme for our children.  School-age children go next door to a separate programme called 'Light-force'.  Older children are welcome to remain in the service with their families and use sermon summary sheets to doodle, play games, and respond to questions about sermon content.  Junior Youth Group members (preteens) meet with the senior Youth Group members immediately after the service to discuss what they got out of the sermon, and enjoy a mid-morning snack together.  Parents are welcome to care for their children in the pews throughout the service and there is a children's area at the back of the church with activities and children's books.  For those who prefer a bit more room there are also toys and resources in the church foyer.  An audio-visual link with the auditorium lets you know what's happening in the service.
