We welcome children as part of our church family and on Sundays we have a special area for little ones in the Lady Chapel. This area has toys, books and colouring things, and space for children to move around.
More details below.
Sunday School meets at the beginning of the 9.30am Sunday service, apart from the 1st Sunday of the month which are All Age services. We generally follow the church calendar (lectionary) and read the relevant passage from the bible, followed by a brief discussion and a fun art or craft activity. This group is primarily aimed at school-age children but younger ones are very welcome to attend with their carer.
Messy Church is a relatively new type of Church worship that can be found across the world and is growing fast. Lingfield Parish Church offers a fun atmosphere for families to enjoy a safe haven where children and parents can celebrate being together and get creative at the same time.
We meet on the second Monday of every month (even during holidays) from 3.30 to 5.30pm. We welcome every one of all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult. A different theme is chosen each session and crafts designed to match, along with a short-relaxed talk and prayer given by the Vicar. There are also plenty of games to play. The sing song is very popular and everyone gets involved. A hot supper is provided at 5pm for all the children.
