Families at St John's

Families and children are an important part of our congregation. Children of all ages are very welcome to stay in church for any of our services. We have a carpeted children’s area in the south aisle of the church, there are play bags, books and other resources for them to use and enjoy.

Footsteps for children meets every Sunday at 10.30am (except during the Family Service).  We gather in church then head to Ranmoor Parish Centre Annexe.  The group is for any child from 3 years upwards.

We meet in church and join in with the first part of the worship. We then leave the church building and go across the road to the Parish Centre. Footsteps takes place in the annexe where we explore and share our Christian faith a wide variety of fun activities: crayoning, painting, stitching, making, &c. If the weather is nice we may spend the time outside in the Parish Centre’s gardens. Our pattern of teaching generally follows the lectionary readings for the week. We finish with a prayer before coming back into church in time for Communion.
