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!

Messy Church is going to take a break in the Autumn term 2018 while we review its future. There will still be plenty of child-friendly activities for families to do – Messy Church goes Large, Scary Stories on Halloween, activities to mark the centenary of WW1 and of course our ever popular Christmas Services.
Ever thought that church was too neat and tidy? Well, come to Messy Church instead! From 3.30 onwards 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. It’s free and all ages are welcome but especially primary school children.

Bright Stars : 3-5 years
As children approach 3 years old & the crèche may start to lose its appeal, the Bright Stars group takes them up to the time they move into Year 1 at school. Bright Stars meet during the 10.15 a.m. service at St Alban’s Church on the third, fourth and fifth Sundays of each month. We meet in the Wells Room, St Alban’s Church Hall, a small room decorated with pre-school displays.
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 Club : 5 – 12 years
Follow the crowd during the second hymn at the 10.15 service for a warm welcome in the St Alban’s Church Hall. Join the Discoverers, Adventurers and Explorers for a variety of activities such as games, craft and drama.
