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.
Here are just some of the groups and events for children & youth at St. Andrew’s
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!
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.
WEEKLY CHILDREN’S GROUPS
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.
