Children and families
We would love to welcome you at any of these events:
Sundays - creche and Sunday school
Children and families are very welcome at our Sunday services, which start at 10am. We have a creche, Sunday school for children and refreshments for everyone afterwards. Find out more about Sundays.
St Aldhelm's toddler group
We have a busy and welcoming parent and toddler group which usually meets 3 times a week during term time: 10am-11:30am on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. Each session costs £2 per family. Our external doors will be shut to keep the children safe inside, but please do come on in.
Note that as we open up again from lockdown, we are aiming to restart Toddlers as a trial soon (we will invite a few families who are known to us), followed by opening to all on Mondays and Fridays, 10am-11:30am, from 21st June. We will update this information here if anything changes.
We offer a safe space for babies and plenty of toys for toddlers to play with including ride-ons and a home corner. We have a dedicated changing space in the toilets as well as potties and toddler toilet seats.
Tea, coffee, squash and biscuits are provided. Babies and toddlers and their grown-ups are all very welcome!
Messy Church is taking a break as we are currently short of helpers. If you are keen to help out then please do get in touch and we hope that we will be able to be up and running again soon
Music group and choir
Our music group and choir meet on Friday evenings from 6-7pm, to rehearse songs for our Sunday services. Children (and adults!) are very welcome to join for the rehearsals and for the Sunday services, either to sing or play an instrument.
You might also be interested in community groups which we host at St Aldhelm's, such as Rainbows and Brownies, Mothers for Mothers and Antenatal classes. You can find more information about these on our Community groups page.
