Kids at Home

Messy Church, Refresh, Toddlers, Children's Area, Holiday Club, ADVENTure

Hello everyone. 

At last we can meet again and there are some exciting new things happening. Our toddler groups on Tuesdays and Fridays in term time have started up. Then there will be a new service called "Refresh" on the 2nd Sunday of the month at 9.30 am. Refresh will be held in the Church Hall and will include crafts, games and music. Adults are welcome to stay or can join the Parish Praise service in church which runs at the same time. On top of that our Family Fun Sundays are now "Messy Church" with crafts, stories, songs and food. Messy Church will happen at 4pm to 5.30pm on the third Sunday of the month (in term time).

Messy Church

Messy Church is a monthly activity based service, usually on a Sunday afternoon, for all children up to the age of 12 years, and their parents​, grandparents​ and carers. We start at 4pm in the All Saints' church halls with ​lots of ​time for activities and crafts based around ​the Bible, ​which the children do with their parents and carers, ​followed by plenty of ​lively ​singing​ and a story. We end our time together​ with a tasty snack and refreshments for all. Children take home everything they have made.

We always finish with a story, songs and prayers and sometimes a video. Then there is a lovely tea to all enjoy together.

We look forward to welcoming you​ to Family Fun. If you have any questions, please email ​children@sanderstead-parish.org.uk.

Summer Holiday Club.

An exciting Summer Holiday Club for children aged 5 -11, is planned for 24th - 26th August 2021.

This year's theme is Super Heroes.

Children's Area

The Children's Area at All Saints is located in St Catherine’s Aisle, which is part of the main church. There are toys, books, games and puzzles suitable for babies and older children and a member of our congregation, who has been D & B checked, stays in the Area throughout the service to look after and ensure the safety of the children. Parents are welcome to stay with their children or to come and go during the service. Children can take toys or colouring books from the Children’s Area and sit with their parents if they prefer. There are toilet facilities and a baby changing unit nearby in the vestry.

Toddler Groups

Our lively and popular Toddler Groups meet in All Saints Halls on Tuesday and Friday mornings at 9.30 am in term time. Back on 8th June 2021.
