Sparrows


Children from the age of 3 have a special group in which to explore their faith. The Sparrows meet during the 9:30 services, from September to the end of the school year (except on the first Sunday of the month). They can learn about the Christian faith through games, stories, crafts and other activities. Sparrows leave the service after the notices (parents may come too if preferred) and return in time to join their families for Communion. If you would like, there are toy bags to borrow from the hooks at the back of church. Please pick up a programme of what’s on from the notice board at the back of church.
