St Edward’s Church Children’s Groups

Children’s Activities on Sunday Morning

Children are welcome to use and explore the Children’s area on left hand side of church which is stocked with simple crafts, drawing materials, a selection of books and a variety of story sacks themed on various bible stories.

Usually on the 2nd Sunday of each month at the 9.30 a.m. service, to coincide with baptisms, there are activities laid on led by our children’s leaders. After the first hymn children aged 3-9 years are invited to join them in the Sunday Club room above, where there is teaching and activities explaining baptism, along with crafts. The children are returned to the service to see the baptism take place and then, if they so wish can continue to finish their crafts upstairs.


The Parlour, at the back of the church, is a sound proof room, having the service piped through for listening to as younger children play with a box of toys suitable for their age. This can be used as a crèche and access to the baby changing facility should parents/carers wish.

Storyfinders Baby & Toddler Group

The group meets every Wednesday during term time between 1.45-3.30pm at St Edward’s Church.

A warm welcome is assured to everyone of all religious backgrounds or none. We have a variety of stimulating toys and activities for babies and children up to 4 years. On arrival the grownups have a chance to enjoy a hot drink whilst the children play and join in with action songs.

We then move up into The Children’s Room, where we all sit to listen to a Bible story told in an engaging style using props and models. Following a short Bible reading and prayer, we then share our feast together, of drinks and biscuits.

Then it is time for more toys and free play as well as an activity that relates to the story – something messy like painting, sticking or tipping and pouring.

We ask a contribution of £1 per first child and 50p for each sibling, which includes drinks and biscuits.
There are toilets and facilities for nappy changing and bottles can also be warmed up in our fully equipped kitchen.
Our group is run by members of St Edward’s and a warm welcome is assured to everyone coming along.
