Children and Families

A lively and inclusive church that welcomes families, children and young people in our church community. Our beautiful churchyard, meadow (Daphne’s Field) and woodland area give us the opportunity to develop outdoor activities.

We run special events for children and families including
• Christmas Crib Services for all the family on Christmas Eve afternoon
• Christingle Service
• Outdoor Bonfire and Barbecue service
• Seasonal children’s workshop sessions with art, craft and outdoor activities
• Summer Family Sports/Fun Day

For babies and children of any age (and also parents who might not have been baptised). This can be the first step of an amazing journey with God, parents, god-parents, friends, family and the church. Contact Father Richard on 01273 962831
