The services are themed, reflecting the Church’s liturgical year, with appropriate extension activities in the form of colouring/work sheets to take away.
Musical instruments are provided for children to enable them to participate during the hymns. ‘Show-and-tell’-style talks, stories and plays are used for teaching.
‘Dressing-up Services’ are a regular feature, with everyone attending encouraged to come in fancy dress (e.g. a ‘pirate service’ on the theme of ‘treasure in heaven’)!
It is our conviction that fun and laughter are essential ingredients in our worship together – after all, the Christian Gospel is supposed to be Good News!
The service lasts approx. 40 – 45 minutes, after which refreshments are available in the Meeting Room at the back of church. (There is a toilet in church, equipped with potty and baby-change unit).
During the course of the year a range of activities for children and families also take place, as well as occasional joint-services with the 9.30 am congregation.
