Meet in the main hall
- Families begin their worship time together at St Mary’s church on a Sunday morning at 10.30 and the children are invited to attend their groups in the hall.
- When directed, parents will guide their children to the Main hall in the church extension.
Parents will be asked to register their children for the session, collect a pass and then rejoin the service in the main church.
Towards the end of the service the children will return to join the main body of the church and parents are invited to collect their children from the Wenlock chapel and hand their pass back to the children’s leaders...
The teaching curriculum used at St Mary’s is The Bible Curriculum. We adapt this to suit the children and our sessions involve prayer, a bible story, craft and learning through play.
