Kids

Créche

The Crèche is available every Sunday throughout the year from 11.20am onwards and is held in the Meeting Room (a sign is on the door). Babies and toddlers up to 3 years old are welcomed by adult & teenage leaders. We look forward to welcoming new little ones and their parents and trust that mums and dads can relax and worship in Church knowing that their children are in safe hands. If you are bringing your child for the first time, don’t forget to fill in a registration form, make sure you tell us about any allergies and tell the carers where you are sitting.

We welcome all mums, grandparents and childminders with babies and toddlers of pre-nursery / playgroup age in their care. It is not a structured group but more a drop-in centre where our mums can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a chat and our children can play together.

Special Friends

This is an activity club set up for children with all forms of special needs, whether they be physical or neurological.

Our group’s aim is to provide an enjoyable, relaxed and friendly atmosphere were all members can feel free to explore and participate in a wide range of activities, such as arts & crafts, music, physical play and sensory stimulations etc.

For those families who know all too well the daily struggles faced at outdoor events or indoor play areas and the logistics involved attending other youth organisations, we hope to present an invaluable opportunity for children to engage and develop their much needed social and motor skills whilst creating lasting friendships in a calmer environment. This will undoubtedly provide a great chance for parents/carers to participate or relax whilst sharing mutual experiences and exchanging knowledge.

We also arrange fun days out throughout the year with visits to the farm or ten-pin bowling and we also invite guests to join us in church such as children’s entertainers or exotic animals etc.

When

1st & 3rd Saturdays in the Rathmore Hall @ 10:00am.
