Children and families are welcome here!
Holly Barton is our new Children and Families Development Worker (from March 2017) and is currently exploring different options for both Sunday mornings and other times in the year.
We are currently running a Sunday Tower session for children 0-8 years' old alongside the main church service in the tower at the back of church. We are following a curriculum and looking at topics such as 'Forgiveness', 'Lying' and 'Parents' this term. Next term, starting September 2018, we shall be looking at key people from the Bible during these sessions. This is aiming to be a place where your children can connect with God in a way that suits them through crafts and playing, whilst the adults connect with God in their way in the main church service.
We shall be moving over to the Parish Church Hall when the major works start in the church building, allowing us to be quite a bit noisier and play some fun and interactive games which will be fun! Keep an eye on the main website pages for more information about what's happening with the Making History project.
Wednesdays (term time only)
There is an independent toddler group that meets in the Parish Church Hall on Wednesdays from 10-11:30am during term time. They welcome all parents/carers in Leatherhead, hoping that the children in your care enjoy playing with and around you while you enjoy a cup of something hot and catch up with friends!
Thursdays (3rd of every month)
From September 2018 we shall be taking a break from running our monthly Messy Church sessions. Mainly this is an opportunity to have time to pray and seek God's heart for what He wants us to be doing in relation to Messy Church. We shall be running three Messy Church sessions next academic year though:
‘Messy Christmas’ - Thursday 20th December 2018 - 3:30 – 5:30pm - Leatherhead Methodist Church
‘Messy Lent’ - Thursday 21st March 2019 - 3:30 – 5:30pm - Leatherhead Methodist Church
‘Messy Summer’ - Thursday 18th July 2019 - 3:30 – 5:30pm - Leatherhead Methodist Church
We hope to see you there and will keep you updated through our Facebook page 'Leatherhead Messy Church' and via email. If you would like to be on our mailing list please email Holly Barton on email@example.com.
We maintain strong links with local schools, including Leatherhead Trinity. The Children and Families Development Worker and clergy are involved in assemblies, and each term services are held in Church.
