Little Church
Play and pray

April writes - Little Church meets every Wednesday afternoon 1.15 to 2.45pm in St Peter’s West End. We welcome pre-school children (0 to 4yrs) and their parents or carers. A time of free play is followed by a Celebration in which we sing songs, listen to a story and pray. We use a hand puppet called Jack to help us and David Gough comes to accompany us on the keyboard. We then have a drink and a snack followed by a craft activity based on the theme of the story we’ve heard. We often get to know families over a number of years until the child goes to school. In a number of cases, contact is maintained through attendance at Messy Church.

Messy Church

Real Kids Real Church

Angela says - Messy Church started at St Swithun's 4½ years ago.   Our dedicated helpers are not just from St Swithun's though, as we have groups from St Peter's and St Swithun's and one person from St Mark's.    We follow the normal Messy Church “pattern” which is welcoming children of all ages (accompanied by adults, usually parents) to craft activities, then a time of teaching and worship, followed by a hot meal together.    Sessions are on the second Saturday of the month from 4.00 to 6.00 pm and take much planning, preparation and prayer.     However, it is worth all the effort to see children and adults coming in through the doors, eager to see what we have to share with them.     Each session follows a theme, often but not always linked to the Church Year, and at the end the children take their craft goodies home in a little paper bag!     The foundation of all this is to bring families to faith: we sow the seeds and pray that God will help them to grow.    April Tompkins has taken the lead in all of this and we are most grateful for her commitment.

First Steps
Sandra writes: We meet Thursdays 9.30 to 11.30 during term time @ St. Marks Church.

People sign in and out and there is a tub for donations.  Its busy with lots of children and parent/carers.  The room is set out in 2/3 areas for safety which works very well and we have lots of fun, chatter and laughter.   We enjoy refreshments together.  New faces are always welcome.

  2. Prayer life
  3. Prams and First Shoes
  4. Young Peoples' Fellowship
