On the first Saturday of every month we meet at St. Francis for Messy Church. This is a family worship session which includes activities and a meal. It is for children with accompanying adults. It starts at 3.30pm with crafts and games, we then have a time of worship before eating together. It finishes by 5.30pm.
On Tuesday afternoons in term time, our after-school church, Sunbeams, meets in the Church Hall, next to St Anne's School at 3.30pm. We have a time of play and have refreshments before moving into a time of worship, song, bible story and craft. Sunbeams is open to anyone though children under 6 need an adult with them.
Children's Church and Creche
St Anne's welcomes many families to our Sunday worship. Some come into Church and stay through the worship. Others start in the Church Hall where there is both Sunday School for children above 3 years old and a happy crèche space for smaller infants and toddlers. Sunday School offers a time of worship, bible stories and activities to help the children (and their parents!) learn more about God's love for them. The curriculum follows the same cycle of readings from the bible as the adults experience in Church across the road.
On the Second Sunday of the month parents and older children are encouraged to join in the service in Church which is an All Age Service. The Crèche continues for younger infants who come over a join us in the service later on. When there is a fifth Sunday of the month there is no Sunday School.
You do not need to "book" a place. Simply come along. We follow careful Child Protection procedures to ensure that all, children and adults alike, feel safe and loved.
We keep a register of all children who attend. If you are thinking about a place for your child in our Church School, we ask you to take responsibility for ensuring that your child's presence is noted on each occasion
