Church Life

Little Fishes

Every Friday during term time we open our doors from 9.30 am – 11.30 am for our baby – reception group.  All parents and carers are warmly invited to bring along their ‘little ones’ for play and social interaction.  There is tea, coffee  and biscuits available for the adults and toast and juice for the children at snack time.  We have areas of play, craft, home corner, rideables, books and puzzles.  Each Friday ends with a story or song and rhyme.

Our intention when we started the group was to connect church with the community and provide a friendly, warm, welcoming and inviting place for children and adults.

We presently charge £1.50 for each family


Children (0-11 Years)

Every other Friday evening Lofthouse Way is taken over by the 4-11′s for KidZone at 6.30 – 7.45.  We have a fun packed programme of games, crafts, films, music and snacks! All centred around a Bible story or theme, and all for 50p!
