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 Messy Church. If you have any questions, please email ​children@sanderstead-parish.org.uk.

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.
