sunday morning groups for children at St Andrew's:
BLUE CARPET CRECHE AREA
The blue carpet is a creche area for pre-school children, equipped with toys. There's space for parents to sit and for children to play.
Gems is a group for pre-school children from ages 2 to 4 that meets in the hall during the service. The service leader will announce when Gems leave and pray for them. So they start off in church first, along with the next age group - Pebbles. Parents are welcome to come in. Gems is led by Chris and Sarah Hughes.
Pebbles is for children from age 5 to age 7 (Key Stage 1). The service leaders will explain when the Pebbles group leaves. Parents are welcome to stay, particularly if children are starting out or visiting. Pebbles is led by a great team of leaders on a rota basis.
The Red Carpet is for children from age 7 to 11 (Key Stage 2). Pebbles children are welcome to sit on the Red Carpet before they leave for their group. Once the Pebbles have left, the Red Carpet leader will initiate various activities for the children as well as encouraging engagement with the service. The Red Carpet is led by a small team on a rota basis.
