The Nursery is now available in Room 206 for children up to 2 years of age.  Parents and/or guardians may take the children directly to the Nursery before worship begins and collect them from the same location afterwards.  Our Nursery Coordinator is Kate Ingram.

 

Church School
Church School is now in session for children 3 and above.  The children should stay in the Sanctuary at the start of worship but will leave once children’s time is announced.  On Communion Sundays the children will return to the Sanctuary to participate, otherwise parents or guardians may pick them up from Church School on the second floor (Room 207) after worship.
