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.
Community@11 (see below).
Playchurch has taken place every month for the past 17 years or so. It was designed for babes in arms, toddlers and pre-school children and their parents. It has been an opportunity for everyone with young ones to meet and worship in a relaxed atmosphere. However over this period a far larger proportion of children has become involved in pre-school and nursery activities. As a result of this gradual change, it has been decided that the monthly meeting should be replaced with a new group “Mums Ahoy!” Details of this group are on the future events page.
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. It will normally be held on the 3rd Sunday of each month. The next Community@11 will be Community@11 Picnic, on Sunday 20 August in Plaxtol Church.
