Children (& Families)
We love to welcome people of all ages into the life of our community, including children.
There are an increasing number of ways for those with children to get involved as we continue to develop our work with families and children and we look forward to meeting you soon.
At St. Peter's Church there is a growing Sunday Club
where children spend part of the service in their own activities
learning about God and having lots of fun along the way. St Peter's
services start at 9.30am. On the first Sunday of the month is an
'All-age' service, where adults and children worship together.
Our monthly Messy Church takes place at St Andrew's Church in the centre of town from 10am-12. It is a fun and relaxed space for families to come and spend time doing crafts, enjoy songs and a Bible story, as well as enjoying a sandwich lunch. And it's free. Check out the Messy Church page for more information.
Sunday at 3.00
is another opportunity to gather with others to continue the journey of
faith at a short interactive informal service for everyone of any age
with children very much in mind which takes place once a month.
It is a pleasure to be able to welcome families into the life of the church and for many this journey starts with the Christening (baptism) of a child. Check out our Baptisms & Thanksgivings page to find out more.
There is also a weekly toddler group that takes place at St Nicholas' Church.
The wider community...
We have links with all the local schools including St Peter's C of E First School and St Peter's Church vestry is the location of St Peter's Pre-School , an independent pre-school run by a great team.
We look forward to seeing you soon. If you would like any more information or have any questions just get in touch.
