We have been awarded the URC Child Friendly Church Award.
This means that we aim to :-
* have a comprehensive and shared vision for Children’s and Youth Work
* provide good opportunities for the voices of children and young people to be heard
* take seriously and respond to feedback from children and young people
* provide opportunities for children and young people to be involved in planning, organising and delivering child friendly church services
* make suitable provision for under 5s in church
* provide groups and organisations to help nurture children and young people
* take safeguarding, Health & Safety and First Aid seriously
A crèche will usually be available for infants.
The activity area is available at the back of the sanctuary for children and their parents, or carers, to use. On the third Sunday of the month the children and young people will go out to their own activities in Junior Church.
