Children's work at St John's

Since taking up the post of Children's worker (part-time) earlier this year we have celebrated a great Holiday Club which has launched some new projects while developing some existing projects further.

Messy Church - Now meets monthly (second Saturday each month 4.00 - 5.30 pm). New families are always welcome for Bible themed craft activities, worship and tea. Our next meeting will be November  8th  2014 we'd love to have you join us.


Family Nights in - This is an  opportunity for Holiday Club, Messy Church and Church families to mix and have a great social evening of fun and food. Our next date is November 15th 5.00 - 7.30 pm with the theme of Pantomimes - Oh yes it is!

Tiny Tots - Meets in church on Tuesdays 9.30 - 11.30 am (term time) and it is great to find time to chat to some of our younger children and their families - together we have a time for singing, playing and that much needed cuppa for the adults, while the children enjoy juice and biscuits. 

I also take assemblies at Kingston Park Primary School which allows to meet a lot of the children who I have got to know on Sundays or during the week at groups that use St John's Church as a meeting place.

St John's Church holds the fantastic Child Friendly Church Award for striving to be the very best we can for all our families who join us for worship and other events.

We have an enthusiastic Junior Church which meets at the same time as our morning worship, unless we are all sharing in a Broadband Service (the first Sunday of the Month). Children from ages two and a half to eleven are welcome. If your older than eleven then our Genesis group may be just the place to ask all those searching questions with other young people in a relaxed chill out zone.
 

Further events that may interest you will appear very soon.
Looking forward to meeting you.
