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 click here to email.

Sunday Prayer Activity - 11th September 2022


This coming Sunday we are continuing with our Castle Project and our theme will be 'Path of Life'.  In our bible passage this week we are told "But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." (Matthew 7:13-14)
For our prayer activity this week we'd like you to have a go at colouring in the sheet shown below, and then write your prayers inside the sheep pen. In the same way that Jesus, the good shepherd and ‘gate’, helps keep us - His sheep - safe, He will also look after our prayers and keep them close to His heart.

COVID UPDATE - September 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 windows open to keep the hall as ventilated as possible.

Many thanks,
Jennie & the team

Sundays 

Over the Summer months we will be running a F.I.G Castle Project for families!  Come and help us decorate and build a castle,  gatehouse and shop, plus other activities in the church hall from 10am - 10.45am on the following Sundays... July 3rd & 31st, August 7th and 28th and September 4th. On September 18th we'll be in the church for 'Back to Church Sunday'.

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:- Sept 6th, 20th, Oct 4th, 18th, Nov 8th, 22nd, Dec 6th.

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:- Sept 13th, 27th, Oct 11th, Nov 1st, 15th, 29th, Dec 13th.
