WORSHIP FOR CHILDREN
Welcoming you & your family
The Team have created a dynamic service pattern that are led by both our clergy and lay leaders. Click on the button to download the current worship pattern, or scroll further down to see upcoming services suitable for little feet.
Children are always welcome in our church. Our monthly service specifically for all generations is the Open Door Service held at Blockley Church on the first Sunday of the Month at 9:30am. What is an Open Door service? It is our version of ‘messy church’ to which we welcome families with children of all ages. It starts with bacon sandwiches, coffee and juice, followed by bible stories, singing, prayer and laughter. The words used are adapted for ease of understanding for children and services include creative and playful activities. The worship is for all ages - you don’t have to have children with you to come!
A toddler group for pre-schoolers and their carers. We meet Mondays, 9.00 to 10.30am, term time only, in the Church Rooms, Chipping Campden. No need to book just turn up - everybody welcome. Contact Ros Bishop.
Collective worship happens once a week in all 7 of the teams’ Primary schools. It is a fun opportunity for Amy and the rest of the team to go into school and support their values for the term and the RP curriculum.
Prayer spaces in school is a wonderfully creative and engaging way for Amy and the team to support mindfulness, reflection, and faith. This is hugely popular with teachers and pupils. Once a year Amy and some of the team hold Soul space a weeklong Prayer space event held at the local high school CCS in Chipping Campden.
Mentoring is something Amy feels privileged to do. Working under the TLG banner. Amy is on hand to support pupils who need targeted intervention.
