At St Andrew’s, we aim to create a safe and enjoyable setting for all the children and young people who visit one of our groups or special events.

MESSY CHURCH

Taking place on Sunday evenings, 4.45 – 6pm, 3rd Sunday, Winter Hall. Messy Church is our relaxed, informal cafe-style service, especially for families. Start with a cup of tea, join in our messy activity (baking, painting, modelling), listen to stories, sing some songs and then tuck into a delicious tea!

CHURCH LITE

We would love to welcome you to Church Lite!  Every second Sunday, not August or November.

There will be:

* A warm welcome and a cup of good coffee as you arrive at 9.45 a.m.

* Time to collect yourself and work out where the toilets are!

* Fun activities for all the family as you settle into your seat in church.

* Plain English – we aim for no “church speak”!

* Songs – familiar and not so familiar – join in or just listen as you wish.

* Peace and stillness – but we don’t mind it being interrupted by children being children!

* Delicious homemade cake as we finish at 11 a.m.


CHILDREN’S WORK:

LITTLE PICKLES

Taking place on Monday mornings, 9.45 – 11.15am, term time, Church Halls.  It is a chance for parents and carers to bring their pre-school children to learn to play and mix with other children. The group also provides a space for new mothers to meet and socialise with other members. Games, toys and other activities are widely used. Members of the church are available to talk, offer a cup of tea and to provide help and support when needed.

VOYAGERS

Taking place on Sunday mornings, 10 –11.15am, Church Halls for years R – 4. Voyagers meet together on Sunday mornings for worship and to learn more about God. We do this in an informal environment and enjoy a variety of activities including games, drama, craft and nibbles! We also arrange occasional social activities.
