CHILDREN & FAMILIES AT ST MARY’S

Children and Families

We look forward to welcoming and meeting you and your family at one of our services. Look out especially for our Kidz Praise service which is aimed at young children and their families.

2nd Sunday – Kidz Praise

*Kidz Praise, a service with readings, prayers and music. There is a lot of movement and activities for the children. It introduces children to the teachings of the bible and to prayer, and allows them to full participate in all aspects of the service. It is very informal, lively and targeted at under 7s, but also with thought provoking issues for older members of the congregation. It is great fun!
It takes place at 9.30 am and lasts about 45 minutes. It has significant lay involvement in leadership of the service. We are also beginning to develop wider congregational involvement in the music used in the service. Please let us know if you would like to help with the service or the music by speaking to Rev. Julie Sear or one of the Churchwardens, (Tim or Dick).

Please join us for coffee and juice afterwards.
