Every week during the 10.30am service we use a combination of Godly Play and storytelling to provide age appropriate Bible teaching to children aged 3+, followed up with craft, drama or other activities related to the theme. Once a month, we meet at the Methodist Hall at 10am to enable a more in-depth exploration of a theme or Bible story, usually with music and drama. Three times a year there are special events: the Children’s Church Nativity Play; the family friendly Exploring Easter event; and the Summer Picnic. At Children’s Church, we regularly share what we have learned with the congregation, in the creation of art displays, in singing, and in dramatic readings and plays. The warm response we enjoy in return affirms the children, and enriches all of our experiences of worship at St Mary’s.
