CHURCH MICE

NEW! Walk Through Church Mice

We are thrilled to announce the return of Church Mice, albeit rather different from our usual mornings together.

The Church will be open every Thursday between 10.30am and 11.30 am for a fifteen minute ‘walk through’. You and your little ones will have the chance to listen to some of our favourite songs, hear a bible story, see some familiar faces and pick up a craft pack to take home with you.

As we can’t sing in Church yet, we have put some of our Church Mice songs on our website (below) for you to enjoy at home (a big thank you to Jonathan Heron and the choir members who helped us with this.)

And of course, we are longing and praying for a return to normal when we can welcome you into Church to play, linger over coffee and cakes, share homemade soup and enjoy learning more about our God who loves and cares for us.

Looking forward  to seeing  you on Thursday 1st October (and many Thursdays after!)

NEW! Socially Distanced Sunday Club

Starting on Sunday 4th October, 10 to 10.45am in The Church Hall, with crafts, challenges, music and fun.

We will all have separate family tables and we will need to follow care rules to keep us all safe (so we will be asking everyone over 11 years to wear a face covering and taking contact details.)

Parents are very welcome to stay for the session.

I look forward to seeing you all, Susan
