For children aged 2 to 6 we have a group called Little Fishes led by Linda, which meets in the Ark or Junior Church room. To begin with we feel it is important for your child especially those aged 2 and 3 to feel safe and to get to know us, parents and carers are welcome to stay for as long as needed to settle them in. This enables you also to meet members of the Children’s team and to see our play-based approach. (Tiddlywinks by Scripture Union, and Godly Play).
During a typical session of 20-30 minutes, we will welcome everybody, then search for Prayer Bear who usually has an interesting item relating to the Bible story or theme we will have. Activities we have enjoyed recently include making sandwiches, icing biscuits, sowing seeds to raise money for Christian Aid, as well as having fun sticking, painting, colouring, singing, playing games, dressing up and using Playmobil figures to act out stories.
