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.

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.
On the first and third (usually!) Sundays each month ‘FIG (Faith in God) Family’ runs in the church hall between 10am and 11am. Tables and chairs for families are arranged informally in the hall, and refreshments are available. 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 a sermon or story and prayer activities. For more information on specific dates, please go to our homepage and click on the green 'What's on' button, or visit our church Facebook page.
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 many families with younger children prefer to sit as it has quick access to the toilets (with baby change facilities). There are also tables positioned throughout the church which enables families with young children to sit and draw, colour and play throughout the service. 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 CANCELLATIONS - DECEMBER 5TH & 12TH ***
After careful consideration we are sorry to announce that Little Explorers is cancelled for the next fortnight - Tuesday 5th & 12th December- due to essential Church Hall maintenance work.
We very much look forward to welcoming you back on Tuesday 19th December for our final session of the year which will be Christmas themed.
You would of course also be most welcome at our Christmas services in the coming weeks, we'd love to see you there - do look on our website and our Facebook page for more information.
Our apologies again,
Jennie & the team
LITTLE EXPLORERS offers a welcoming, stimulating environment for preschool aged children to have fun and form friendships alongside their carers.
Sessions are held in our light, spacious church hall from 10am to 11.30am, take place on a Tuesday morning (term time only) and cost £2.00 per child (£1.50 per additional child). A pre-packaged snack is served to children at 10.45am and hot drinks and biscuits are available for carers throughout. Children have the opportunity to colour, play with toys, books, sand and playdough, and on alternate weeks we have a bible story and biblically themed craft activity available, plus bubble prayers! Each session finishes with a short singing and musical instrument time.
You can always be sure of a very warm welcome. We look forward to seeing you!
Please email - Jennie Fidler - Children & Family worker and session leader for more information.
Autumn term dates: 19th December.
