Children’s Area

Our Sunday Morning services are normally based on material from a magazine called   ‘Roots: All Age Worship’  which follows the lectionary readings.

Roots have made some material free for families to access during lockdown- go to this website to find them:

Christmas will soon be here and it will be different for most of us, especially if we cannot see our loved ones. Prepare children for the changes and help them understand why they may not see Grandma or Uncle etc. Remind them that the meaning of Christmas has not changed even if the way we have to celebrate has.

Send a hug to someone who cannot visit you this year:  here’s how:

  1. Get a long piece of paper (old wall paper is ideal, otherwise join sheets together) and lay your child on it with arms outstretched
  2.  draw round their outstretched arms
  3. When they get up there will be a space between the arms – draw a large heart here
  4. Decorate how you wish, draw kisses, stick on photos etc –  then roll it up and send it to a loved one

Do you live near a care home? Residents have been isolating since March – so why not provide a little Christmas cheer by drawing a picture, making  decorations for their tree or their lounge . – then in December post them or deliver them in person.
