Sunday mornings are lots of fun at Fairmilehead Parish Church. That's when our youngest church members meet in our halls for stories, crafts and games. The fun begins at 10.30am in church where they hear a story before leaving to join their own special Young Church groups. All ages are catered for and all our leaders and adult helpers are PVG checked.
For babies and young toddlers up to 3 years where there's room to play and explore under the supervision and care of our creche leaders.
Children join Sunbeams from age three until the end of Primary 1. We follow a programme called 'Seasons of the Spirit' which includes singing, crafts and stories from the Bible.
The children are encouraged to take turns to set up the welcome area with the Bible, a candle (battery operated!) and a collection box (well piggy bank!). We sing our Sunbeams song and say a short prayer together.
Priscilla the puppet introduces our theme and the children are asked to share their experiences on the chosen topic. Sunbeams is about having fun but it is also about giving the children a gentle introduction to God, His amazing world and the love He has for us all.
STEPPING STONES AND EXPLORERS
Is for children in P2-P4 while our Explorers Group is for children in P5-P7. After story time in church, the children head off to Frogston Hall where both groups gather together to discuss the week's story. While the older children are encouraged to share their understanding of the message through further discussion with one another, the younger children in Stepping Stones take part in a craft activity also related to the story.
Please contact Helen Grant or Sandra Walton, via the Church Office, for more information.
