News for children and families

Calling all mums, toddlers, families, young people, young at heart..

‘I am really excited to take over the CYFAM (children, youth and family) ministry role from Phil Harper and I can’t wait to start in September with a new team and a new outlook. I have worked closely with Phil over the past few years and am really keen to build on the fantastic foundations he laid down for us.

I have had a very long and varied professional career working with children, families and young people in the legal system, providing a safe and happy place for children, families and young people to come together is very important to me.

Since retiring 5 yrs ago I have re-trained and worked in Early Years, Nursery and Primary classrooms providing learning support, in particular with arts, crafts and creative play, I currently manage an out of school / holiday club at Newbridge Prep and look forward to transferring these skills to faith based activities dedicated to building St Johns next generation!

We have recently acquired new play equipment; please come and check it out at back of church if you haven’t already done so. We will re-launching the new Tots Play Venture in September, dates will be on our website shortly as well as in the magazine.                             I look forward to meeting many of your children as I work closely with St Johns Academy and at our new church ventures as they are rolled out over the next few months, including Messy Church and COSTA.        (click here for Messy Tots and Messy Church calendar)
