Children are always very welcome at Children’s meeting every Sunday.
Children join the main meeting for the first 15 minutes, then have a separate activity upstairs in the Children’s Room before rejoining the meeting at the end. Children’s activities are organised by one of a group of people who have undergone a CRB check. Parents are welcome to sit in if they wish. For more information please email Children’s Meeting
