Hello and welcome!

Here at All Saints we hold a variety of services and groups that are designed to cater for children and their families.  Led on Sundays and throughout the week, we aim to provide welcoming, stimulating environments that enable our young members to have fun and form friendships, whilst learning more about God and growing in faith.  All staff and volunteers have completed safeguarding training and and have had DBS checks.  Please read on to find out more, and if you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Prayer Activity - Sunday 29th May 2022
This coming Sunday our Bible passage is from Acts 16 where we're told about Paul and Silas being put in prison. One night when the men were praying and singing hymns to God, there was suddenly such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken, the prison doors flew open and everyone's chains came loose!
For our prayer activity this week we'd like for you to have a go at writing your thank you, sorry and please prayers onto strips of paper, and then join them together in a long chain. Once finished, hang them up somewhere at home where you'll see them everyday. As you pray, go down the chain and pray for the things you have written down, and as your prayers change you can add loops or take them out as needed!
We look forward to seeing your creations later on.

COVID UPDATE - May 2022
As you will all be aware, there continues to be a level of Covid in schools, workplaces and the general environment. If you feel unwell with Covid-like symptoms before a session, then it would be greatly appreciated if you did not attend. Thank you for your understanding.

As always, hand sanitiser will be provided and we will have the windows open to keep the hall as ventilated as possible.

Many thanks,
Jennie & the team

Sundays 

Our next FIG Family church services will be on Sunday May 15th & 22nd, 10am - 10.45am in the church hall.  We look forward to seeing you then!

Please note some changes are in operation due to Covid 19

Families with babies and children are very welcome at Sunday services at our church!  We love to involve our children, and so every Sunday there is a service suitable for them.

Most Sundays ‘FIG (Faith in God) Family’ runs in the church hall between 10am and 10.45am, after which we join the rest of our church family in the main church for Holy Communion.  The main service then finishes at 11am.  Tables and chairs for families are arranged informally in the hall, and refreshments are available for the duration of the service.  Each week we aim to include some children’s worship songs, musical instruments, colouring/worksheets to complete, and activities to join in with, as well as the sermon and prayer activities. On the first Sunday of each month, ‘FIG Communion’ enables us to remain in the hall for the duration of the service.

Within church there is a seating area to the right as you enter the main building, which has a box of quiet toys and is where most families with young children prefer to sit as it has quick access to the toilets (with baby change facilities).  We also have a room behind the congregation.  This is an area where you can take babies and children to play, calm down or feed if you feel they are getting too upset in the service.  Please ask where these areas are when you get to church and we will be pleased to assist you.


     
Little Explorers and Coffee, Chat & Play


Coffee chat play          Coffee chat and play

Little Explorers alternates each week with Coffee, Chat & Play and both groups are perfect for pre-school age children.  Sessions are held in the church hall from 10am until 11.30 am and take place on a Tuesday morning (during term time only) and cost £1.50 per child.  They provide a great opportunity for a cuppa and a chat with other carers and their children, in a fun, friendly environment.

At Coffee, Chat & Play sessions offer time for free play in our light, spacious hall.  We'll have toys, colouring and play dough available and a pre-packaged snack is served to children at 10.45am. We finish sessions with a short singing time.  Tea & coffee are available for carers.

Dates this term:- 3rd May, 17th May, 7th June, 21st June, 5th July, 19th July 2022.

Little Explorers sessions offer children the chance to play with toys and books and we have a biblically themed sticking, colouring and painting activity, along with the sand tray and play dough. Again tea & coffee are available for carers.  After  about an hour of play we serve a pre-packaged snack to the little ones and move to the carpet area where we listen to the bible story, enjoy bubble prayers, and a time of singing.  

Dates this term:- 26th April, 10th May, 24th May, 14th June, 28th June, 12th July 2022.
