St Giles loves kids, and if you have children you are more than welcome to come to our services. Not only do we have provisions and activities for children in our Sunday services, there are other activities throughout the week.
Normally there are Sunday Clubs activities for them during the 10.30 a.m. service. These activities cover 3- 15 year-olds in different groups that take place in our church halls with a team of experienced leaders. The children are in church for the very first part of the service before they go out to their clubs. They then return into church for the last part of the service.
ALL AGE WORSHIP
Every second Sunday of the month there is an All-Age Worship. As well as a child-friendly sermon and songs, we also are able to welcome the children who have recently been baptised.
At our 10.30 a.m. Sunday morning service we provide a creche in the hall at the back of church. This is for under 3s and the creche can be used for part or all of the service. On the Second Sunday of the month there is no creche, instead there is an all age service at 10.30 a.m. – this is a shorter and livelier service and the children stay in church for the whole service.
Rainbows is for small babies, toddlers and young children up until they start school. It meets in the Church Hall (which is found inside St Giles’ Church) every Wednesday morning during school term time. The aim is to provide a relaxed environment for parents, grandparents and carers with tea, coffee, toast and biscuits. There is a wide selection of toys for the children to play with. There is normally some singing of nursery rhymes for a short period near the end of the session. Rainbows is open 9.00 – 11.30 a.m.
PRAISE AND PLAY
Every Monday morning from 9.30am onwards, we have a short service for small babies, toddlers and young children. This includes craft activities, fun songs, and a chance for parents to socialise over a tea or coffee!
