Family Praise and
Crafty Church at St Mary's
to Family Praise is a short, simple, informal service held on the THIRD and FIFTH Sundays of the month and is designed with young families in mind.
Each service follows a bible theme which is relevant to family life.
- Simple prayers,
- lively stories,
- contemporary songs
providing an informal, and hopefully thought provoking, time of worship.
On the fourth Sunday of the month our Family Praise service becomes the 9:30am 'Crafty Church'. This is when youngsters are encouraged to participate in craft activities in their pews (similar activities to Messy church) that help them remember a particular bible truth or story.
On the second Sunday of each month Family Praise and the 11.00am congregation meet for a combined service at 10.00am called 'Family Matins'. This is an all age service.
On the first Sunday of each month Family Praise and the 11.00am congregation meet for a combined service at 10.00am called 'Family Communion'. Although still aimed at families and children, this is a quieter, more thoughtful service, where people are welcome to receive the bread and wine of Communion, or a blessing.
