Welcome to our Children's and Families page
In the meantime - if there is anything we can do to help please get in touch - click here to email me. We really would appreciate some feedback! If we're doing things you like, or not doing things that you would like us to, or even if we're doing things in a way that doesn't work for you - please do let us know. We want to be here for you and without feedback we can't make changes.
If you make any of the craft ideas posted here please do send me pictures - I'd love to put a gallery together of all your work. All our previous ideas and activities are still here - they've just moved to our Archive page
We are exploring other things we can do with the Children's and Families ministry during this time so follow us on Twitter and Facebook to stay up to date with all our efforts and, hopefully, still feeling part of our amazing Church Family - we miss you!
Each week I will post a fun, new PDF Family Worship Activity for you to explore and enjoy
This weeks pack click on the link for 27th September - Water from a Rock!
These are the crafts from our Messy Service craft pack (6th September). We looked at "God's Rules" and how we gained freedom by following the rules, especially focusing on "Love your Neighbour as yourself". Romans 13.9
Our August Puppet Service is having a look at CHANGE and the POSITIVE things we can find in change, even if it seems daunting at first. I hope you enjoy the puppet sketch! (16th August)
Our GOD is a changeless God, who loves us no matter what. So I've made a new challenge for you to find the positives in change, or maybe change the way you think about things to make them more positive.
I hope you enjoy the Positivity Challenge - let me know how you get on!
There will be a few copies of BOTH challenges available at the back of our churches, during the Private Prayer sessions, if you would like a paper copy. Alternatively you can download the PDF here Kindness Challenge by clicking on the link.
I've made a new booklet of activities for young children during lock-down for our Mustard Seeds (and other youngsters!!). Check it out here
I've now made a follow up - Lock-down 2 which can be downloaded here
All our previous craft ideas and instructions are now on the Archives page - click here to view
Despite all the restrictions that we are living with at the moment we still have much to be thankful for, this is a lovely idea that helps remind us of this. See if you can spot these on our Notice Boards when you walk past our churches
We are thinking of you and you remain in our prayers. I love this idea! To download your own blank version - click here. I'd love to see what you think ...
You can download your own copy of this to complete here
We are all missing seeing the people we love. Why not send them a picture from your family to theirs with love! You can download a blank copy of this sheet here

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)
