parent and toddlers
We have 3 Parents and Toddlers groups, which meet at 10am and 12:50pm on Mondays, and 9:45am on Wednesdays, in our Willow Hall. Sessions last for 90 minutes, and are for all pre-school children, accompanied by a parent or carer. The children can play, create and generally have fun, under your watchful eye, while you enjoy a coffee or tea and chat to friends old and new.
At the present time, the three sessions all have waiting lists, but we keep these as short as possible. If you are interested in bringing your child(ren) to one of the sessions, please come along at the start of one of them and you will be welcome to stay for that session as our guest. You will be able to find out the latest position with regard to waiting lists, and register for whichever group you wish. As soon as a place becomes available, you will be invited to join. The cost is £2.50 per family per session.
The ages of the children can be from just a few weeks, right up to when they start school. They remain the responsibility of the parent / guardian, but that does not stop the adult from having a nice cup of coffee and a chat with other parents and the leaders.
If you are interested in coming along with your child (or children), we suggest that you come along to one of the sessions, stay as our guest for that day and, if you decide you would like to come regularly, give your details to the leaders. They will be able to let you know if there is a waiting list for that session, or for any of the others. We now have a dedicated mobile phone for Parent & Toddlers, where you can leave messages for the leaders (explanation of non-attendance, perhaps?). This will be checked every week, but if you wish to speak to someone more urgently, please ring the church office.

Junior church meets every Sunday during the normal worship services. For the pre-school age group we have a crèche and a group called Arklight for children between the ages of 2 ½-4 ½. Our crèche allows parents to either leave their child with the leaders whilst they return into the service or you can stay with your child and still enjoy the service through the live link. Arklight engages the children in learning about Jesus through fun, games, singing and various activities.
