Children & Families

Our desire is to reach families in order to tell them of the Good News of Jesus Christ and to teach the foundational truths of the Christian faith. Come check out what we provide in our churches and within the local community.

Due to Covid-19 some of these ministries have been postponed to a later date

Family Service

Our goal is to provide a fun and safe space for families to learn more about the stories in the Bible and to journey together in their faith development.

We welcome you to our Parish-wide Family Service weekly on Sunday’s from 9:30am at St Saviour’s School Hall and on a private zoom. We come together and learn through active songs, games, discussions and crafts!

Everything we do is in line with the Government and Church of England’s Covid-19 guidelines. We have a maximum of 10 mat spaces in during the Family Service but you are able to join us virtually via zoom.
For more information on how to join virtually email our Children’s & Youth Worker Bex Griffiths (details below).

Messy Church

“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.

Please note for the month of May we will be meeting on the 23rd May NOT the 30th May.

Playgroups

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 their 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.
