All people are always welcomed by all 3 churches, whatever their age. In order to encourage family, children and youth inclusiveness, we do our best to make special provision for younger people at the family freindly services as follows:
Children of all ages are really welcome to drop in to the St Catherine's Children's Group during the All Age Worship service every first and third Sunday of the month at 09:30 am.
For more information, please contact : Kate Morgan for details.
Messy Church: We come together to worship God in an informal service with a 3:30 pm start on the fourth Sunday in the month.
At each 'messy' service there are a number of crafts, catering for different abilities and encouraging all ages to take part. Adults join in, often with the excuse that they are there to help, while parents and carers come with their children. More on Messy Church
There is a Sunday School that meets together during part of the services on the first and third Sundays in the month.
Everybody is together as a church family at each service. Including at the village breakfast, an activity service for the whole church family usually at the church Hall.
The location of this depends on where the whole church are meeting, so "another building" may mean the church or the church hall.
The specific age groups are:
|Crèche (0-3 yrs)||Facilities are provided for parents to supervise their children during any part of the service, in a room near to where the rest of the church are.|
