Services for children
Some services are designed particularly with children in mind:
The family service is held at 9.30am on the fourth Sunday of every month.
The Nativity and Christingle service at Christmas, when children take part in the nativity tableau during the service.

Playchurch is for babes in arms, toddlers and pre-school children and their parents. It is an opportunity for everyone with young ones to meet and worship in a relaxed atmosphere. Playchurch lasts about 3/4 hour with fuzzy felt Bible stories, singing and craft activities for the children and is an opportunity for parents to have an informal discussion on the week's theme. There will be drinks and biscuits for the children and their parents.
Playchurch will take place on Thursday 30 May in Shipbourne Church, starting at 9.30am.
If you've got young children, it would be great to see you there. For more details, call Mary Perry on 01732 810797 or Carol Crossley on 01732 810801.
This group is for 10 to 14 year olds in Shipbourne and Plaxtol.
The aim is to help them as they start out in their lives in their new schools and as teenagers. It features discussion on the Bible and life issues, games, films and snacks. The next meeting of the group will be at the Community @11 service (see below). For more information on Rock Solid, please contact Peter Brewin, 01732 810361 or at [email protected]

This is a joint benefice service and is held once a month in Plaxtol Church on a Sunday. Following discussion with the families who attend the service, it has been decided that the service should take place at 11.00am, so the service has been re-named Community @11 and will be held on the 3rd Sunday of each month.
