Toddle Into Church
Back in 2014 two of our younger women had the bright idea of setting up a mums and tots group in the church, meeting on Monday mornings from 9:30 to 12:00.
This was an instant hit and over the years the numbers of mums, dads, grandparents and tots have continued to grow, some from within the church but mostly non-members. Each Monday morning they all enjoy an atmosphere of fun and play, and are served with light refreshments; juice for the little ones and coffee or tea for the adults. This gives some time for carers of young children to unwind with a brew, nibbles and a chat, knowing their kids are safe, letting off steam and having a great time. There are activities, songs and stories, too.
There are normally no breaks for school holidays, save for Christmas and New Year, but we do have a Christmas party with a visit from an ol’ man in red and his sack of goodies! During holidays it’s lovely to see the return of ‘old tots’ who’ve moved on to primary school.
