Children & Families

Children and families are welcome to all our services.  Children regularly help with ringing the church bell to call people to worship, distributing and collecting hymn books and service sheets, taking the collection and snuffing out candles.  There are activities and special worship material for children in each church.
Watch out for details of occasional GoMAD (Go Make a Difference) services.  Sometimes held on Sunday afternoons with lots of craft activities (Messy Church) and followed with tea and cakes.  We have enjoyed a visiting worship band and St Nicholas Praise has become a regular afternoon service in December.
An enthusiastic team enable all the children (and staff/adult helpers) from Uley school to Experience Christmas and Easter in St Giles church.  A number of stations are set up around the church telling the story of Christmas and Easter.  There are activities to experience at each station to help us wonder about what it was like to be there and what does Jesus story mean for us today.
