Children & Families
Our goal is to provide a fun and safe space for children to learn more about the stories in the Bible and to journey together in their faith development.
Children’s church happens every 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Sundays at both the 0930 and 1115 services.
“Messy Church is a way of being church for families and others. It is Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.”
Come join us every last Sunday of the month from 3pm – 5pm for diverse sensory arts & crafts, wide games, singing, bible stories & a meal for all families. This ministry is suitable for Primary School aged children.
For more information contact Jo Alexandre or Bex Griffiths.
Parish Playgroups are drop-in, stay-and-play groups for preschool children and their parents and carers.
St Saviour’s Playgroup – Mondays 10 to 11.30am, for 0 to 5 year olds and their carers
St Paul’s Playgroup – Tuesdays 10 to 11.30am and for 0 to 3 year olds and thier carers.
Both groups provide a safe place for children to play and for adults to get to know one another. There’s tea, coffee, juice and biscuits, great toys and about 15 minutes of singing at the end of each session. They run during term-time. There is no charge, but a £2 donation is welcome. Please note that only the second session at St Paul’s will have a circle time with songs and rhymes.
Milkwood Holiday Club
Milkwood Holiday Club is a branch off the Milkwood Summer Programme (see more information about MSP) and is a great way for children to enjoy a variety of activities in their day with friends by playing sports, wide games & crafts to enjoying a board game and reading books. Each day also provides a delicious and healthy lunch.
The Milkwood Summer Programme will be happening in the last 2 weeks of the summer holidays for ages 6-16 at the Milkwood Community Park and The Milkwood Holiday Club will be during the October half term for Primary School years.
A Brownie group meets weekly at St Saviour’s and around 20 girls aged between 7-10 years attend for fun and varied activities. Three longstanding members of the congregation lead the group and links with the church are strong. Find out more at https://www.girlguiding.org.uk/
