All Hallows is very much a 'family church', with a wide mix of ages. Children and families in general are welcome at the different things that go on, but of course there are times when particular events are more specifically for families.
Many parents like to celebrate the birth of their child with a special service. The Church of England offers 2 such services, one for those who want to make bigger commitments and promises regarding bringing the child up in the Christian faith and one where less commitments and promises are required. We are delighted to offer both.
If you are interested in such a service for your family then do pop along to a family service (usually 10:00am on the first Sunday of the month) and have a chat with the vicar.
One of the midweek activities that we have offered (pre-pandemic) to carers and their babies / toddlers is a toddler group.
Patch has been running for many years now and a huge number of families in the local area have enjoyed coming along, playing with other children, talking with other grown-ups and, of course, the endless supply of toast and a cuppa.
Patch is a very fun place to be with a great buzz from those present. (There is also a lot of car parking at the back of the church hall, so it is easy enough to get children in and out of car seats.)
Patch takes place during school term times, 10:00-11:30am on Wednesdays in the church hall and lounge, and costs £1.50 per family.
It is our hope to get Patch, or something like it, up and running again as soon as we are logistically able to do so.
