From 10.30 - 12 on Thursday mornings Time for Tots attracts 15 - 25 children
with their carers each week in term-time. Using the full church area, they
enjoy singing and a Bible story, a craft activity, refreshments and a great
time on the larger toys and tunnels. Nursery rhymes on CD indicate that it's
time to clear up, and the older children love to bring toys up to the
cupboard ready to be put away.
Time for Tots is such an important outreach for this church, as it
constantly invites and welcomes new generations into our Christian
community. The carers (parents, grandparents, childminders) remain
responsible for their children at all times, and our function is to enable
them to spend quality time with their children - however, we need at least
three volunteers to "front" the sessions, and as things look at the moment,
we can muster only two a week from September.
After a busy year, we need to expand our team of church adults who help, but
naturally have occasional other commitments too. Could you find time to
become part of the Time for Tots team? You are welcome to make a "taster"
visit before we finish for the summer!
Remaining dates this term are:
July 3, 10
The Autumn Term's dates will be:
September 11, 18, 25
October 2, 9, 16, 23
November 6, 13, 20, 27
Thank you for your ongoing prayers and support for Time for Tots. We do hope
we shall be able to continue this work in the coming months and years.
