Our Little Lions meet each Sundayduring the morning service

All children aged 4-12 years are welcome to attend













Since its launch in November 2011, we have been developing this important work with children and getting to know them and their carers over the months and years.

The children follow a similar  programme of bible stories as the adults which makes it much more interesting when the children report back at the end of the service.

It was lovely to see the new Little Lions banner out for the first time on Whit Sunday in 2012, and they celebrated their first birthday on 18 November 2012.

There is a children's corner for younger children (birth to 3 years) which youngsters and their parents are welcome to explore. The den under the stairs is very popular with toys and a kitchen with lots of toy foods. There are also plenty of books and toys for the under- and over-threes.

We have a dedicated group of leaders and helpers who are very friendly and able to answer any questions parents may have.



We base our learning on the resources in Roots which follows the weekly readings in Church. We start with the lighting of our candle, which is followed by various activities including singing, listening to a Bible story,and talk about its relevance in our lives, pray and tackle a suitable craft.  Our crafts are displayed on the notice board in the children's corner, and have included pictures, posters, models, Easter and Mother's Day gifts and food crafts.

We take part in the Whitsuntide Walks and the Palm Sunday service with the donkey. During Lent we collect our spare change for Water Aid and sponsored our donkey, Hannah.

The children take an active part in the services: acting as welcomers, delivering bread and wine, as sidesperson and  Crucifer.

The Children always enter a Christmas tree  our annual Festival, and share the Christmas story in a nativity service, together with members of Praise & Play and Lords Lions.

The children placed palm leaves on the cross at the Palm Sunday Service on 20 March.

We also have a Praise and Play Group for pre-school children on Monday afternoons in the church and church hall in school term time. For details visit the Praise & Play Group page.
