[fusion_tab title=”Creche”]The crèche is running every Sunday within the Covert room of the Church. There is a church member tasked with overseeing this area each week but you are more than welcome to accompany and stay with your child during the service. There are also nappy changing facilities available within the church for your use.[/fusion_tab]
[fusion_tab title=”Key Stage 1 and 2″]Every Sunday (other than during all-age services) activities run for children in primary school years (ages 4 – 11). A group runs for each key stage with the younger children in the covert room and the older ones in our facility located within the church grounds. Both groups involve lots of fun activities with games and craft based around biblical teaching.[/fusion_tab]
[fusion_tab title=”Quest”]Quest is a group aimed at Children currently in Secondary school and runs every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month.[/fusion_tab]
Messy Church is for all ages and is a church where we can make lots of noise, have fun, be creative, where it is relaxed and has a lovely atmosphere. It is a global scheme and is described on their website as being:
– A way of being church for families involving fun
– Found across the world
– Values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration
We started Messy Church in our Parish in 2012. Sundays are often family days and therefore we looked for a time mid-week to meet together 4 times a year. We wanted to it to be centred on Christ, showing Christian hospitality and is based on creativity. Over the last year we have made mobiles, sheep handprint pictures, candle holders, decorated biscuits, made the walls of Jericho and made a nativity scene out of junk modelling. Messy Church is an opportunity to play together, be creative together, have fun together and eat together. A place where we can be family.
The next Messy Church is on Wednesday 28th August 3.30pm at Handcross Recreation Ground.
The holiday club is an annual event usually taking place over the February half-term for children is Key Stages 1 and 2.
Each year has a different theme but is always a fun filled time of singing, craft, challenges and learning more about Jesus!
