The events we put on for the young have exploded! To help you organise your life, Emma has given us a complete list:
On the first Sunday of each month at Westbury Park Methodist Church, we have a special service for children under 7 and their families. It is informal – action songs suitable for little ones, a story and some simple prayers. It starts at 09.15 and the service lasts about 20 minutes. There is no lower age limit for this service!

There are crèche facilities available with a variety of toys at St Alban’s 10.15am service. The room is glass fronted looking into the church and the service is relayed into the crèche via a loudspeaker. Use it for as little or as much of the service as you need. The crèche is most suitable for children under 3 years of age.
Sunday School Nursery Group
As children approach 3 years old, the crèche starts to lose its appeal and nursery group takes them up to the time when they start school. Nursery group meets during the 10.15 a.m. service at St Alban’s Church on the third, fourth and fifth Sundays of each month.
On these Sundays, we meet in the Wells Room (a small room decorated with pre-school displays in the St Alban‘s Church Hall). The emphasis is on play and fun! Parents are welcome to stay or return to the service depending on the needs of your child.

Sunday School 5 – 16years
Follow the crowd during the second hymn at the 10.15 service for a warm welcome in the St Alban’s Church Hall. There are five different groups to meet the needs of this age range. On the second Sunday of the month, we all stay in church for the all-age family service.
St Alban’s Junior Choir welcomes all children of primary school age or just below. Junior Choir meets together from 6.15 to 6.45pm on a Friday night in St Alban’s Church in school term time. Nicky and Nigel’s teaching is based on voice to voice technique and does not require an ability to read – just enthusiasm! The main aim is to
build self confidence to perform.

Ever thought that church was too neat and tidy? Well, come to Messy Church instead! From 4 – 6pm on the third Wednesday of the month – there will be an hour of craft, a short service and then we’ll all have dinner together before home time. All ages are welcome but especially for primary school children.
