Children's and Families

Welcome to our Children's and Families page

Under the current Government and Church of England Guidance our churches are still OPEN for COLLECTIVE WORSHIP.  If you are unable to join us in person, please do keep in touch.  Most of our 10am services will be streamed on Facebook Live.  Please contact the office to "book your pew" if you are joining us in church

Please stay in touch and follow us on social media, and let us know if we can help in any way!  

Good Friday - This year our 10am service will be an imaginative, thoughtful and reflective All Age Service exploring the Easter Story from the last supper to the events of Good Friday.

Easter Sunday - Our 9am service in Bisley church and the 11am service in West End church will be an All Age Communion - and maybe some Easter Eggs to find?!!

There will be a Self Guided Easter Trail around both Bisley and West End with 10 "Eggs" for you to find Starting on Palm Sunday and available throughout Holy Week.  The "check sheet" can be downloaded here(There will be 10 Eggs in each village - the same trail).  Can you find them all?  The Easter Story accompanies the Egg Trail and can be downloaded here or via the QR code on the posters.

There is a free game available for all mobile devices called Guardians of Ancora.  It takes you on an adventure through Bible stories.  It's 100% free, with NO in app purchases and is Biblically faithful.  It is aimed at 8-11 year olds, and I have to confess is quite good fun!! (yes, I've played it - Bx)
