SUNDAY SCHOOL NOW OPEN – DO JOIN US

Our Sunday School is held in the church hall during the 10.30am Sunday service and is open to all children between the ages of 1 and 11 (we have a youth group which meets for secondary school children/youth).

We join in with the adult congregation to begin with for songs and a welcome and then head off into the hall for our fun time! We play games, do craft, make friends and learn all about God’s amazing love!

LITTLE STARS (Wednesday Morning Toddler Group)

 

What is Little Stars?

Little Stars is a parent and toddler group which meets term time on a Wednesday morning (10am till 12noon) at St Mary’s. Run by our Church, Community Families & Children’s Worker and a group of experienced volunteers who are members of St Mary’s, Little Stars is open to mums, dads, grandparents, nannies, childminders and anyone with children aged 0 – 5yrs.

 

What’s on offer?

We have a big space with a huge variety of toys ranging from baby toys, bouncers and mats to toys suitable for older toddlers. Our activities table varies from week to week with craft and sensory play such as magic sand. We usually end each week with a song time which both carers and children encouraged to join in with if they wish to.

Our aim at Little Stars is to provide a welcoming, safe environment, enabling carers to both interact with their children through play and to meet and chat with other carers whilst their children are playing. Our volunteers are always on hand to chat about anything and everything, provide advice (or suggest someone who could help), offer a listening ear or simply to fetch you a cup of coffee whilst you feed your little one!

 

What is the cost?

Little Stars costs £2.50 to register you and your child and there’s no need to call in advance, just turn up. Your one off fee is used to buy new toys and equipment and enables us to give a donation back to St Mary’s to support other ministries within the church. After registration the cost is £1 per session for an adult and child and a further 50p for every additional child over the age of 6 months. Refreshments for you and your child(ren) are included in weekly fees.

 

Covid Restrictions

Masks are now mandatory within the church so we ask that you wear one whilst in the building unless you are medically exempt. If you have any signs of Covid (especially noting the new signs of the Omicron variant) then we ask that you do not attend without a negative PCR or isolating and a negative lateral flow. This is for the protection of all parents, children and volunteers. All toys and equipment are quarantined between Little Stars sessions and are washed/wiped over regularly.
