Messy Church takes place in Saint Barnabas Church Hall on the 3rd Tuesday of each month between 3:30 and 6pm.

All of the children attending Messy Church must be accompanied by an adult.

On arrival children are welcomed with a drink and a biscuit, parents with a cup of tea.

The session itself starts with 20 minutes of board games followed by crafts on the theme of the day, then the children go into church to listen to a story, before finally going back into the church hall for a light tea.

There is no charge for this but donations towards the cost are appreciated.

For further information contact Christine Gill on 01246 454608.

The Whittington Hub is for children between 4 and 11 years old, and the cost is £1 a week. It takes place in Saint Barnabas Church Hall every Wednesday between 5pm and 6:30 pm during term time. The 90-minute session is made up

mainly of games with some crafts. There is also a tuck shop available during the session.

For further information contact Christine Gill on 01246 454608.

Unfortunately due to the present circumstances, and following government guidelines, the Church of England has decided that all church buildings will remain closed for the foreseeable future. The Church continues to operate as WE are the Church. Every help offered to the vulnerable, every time you don't go out, every prayer said is the church at work. A range of prayer and worship resources can be found on the Church of England website.

We are already looking forward to the great celebration we will have when this is past.

If you need to contact us, the church warden is Mrs Christine Gill on 01246 454608 and Rev Jo can be contacted via email revjomorris@gmail.com.

Further details will be posted on our website as they become available.

We are living though difficult and unprecedented times and I hope as a community we are all following the advice we are being given to help us keep safe. Please be assured of my prayers for you all. I look forward to meeting up with you as soon as it is possible.

Many blessings.   

Reverend Jo
