(Every first/ third Sunday of the month)
St Mary’s Tots is a very informal service for Toddlers and their families and is held every 1st/ 3rd Sunday of the month. It is a great way for Toddlers to be introduced into the church and for them and their parents to be involved in fun and exciting activities that this service has to offer.
The service has two main aims. The first is to make children and families feel welcome and comfortable in the church, whatever happens! The second is to introduce them to aspects of our Christian beliefs in a very accessible way, through a loosely structured service with plenty of routine. It is very interactive and lasts around 20-30 minutes.
We have a soft start of a craft activity related to the service. It is then a mixture of songs, games, stories and prayers. Some of these elements are religious, and others are familiar parts of daily life, so that the children (and adults) can relate to the service from their own experiences in life. We use a variety of different resources for this service, have refreshments and a chat after the service and have toys in the children’s corner for the Toddlers to play with. We look forward to welcoming you to this service.
(This service will commence from the 5th September)
