Church of England Diocese of Blackburn St. James, Wrightington

Play and Praise Group


This group is organised by St James Mothers Union. Our helpers are all members and have all been DBS checked. The group meets every Wednesday morning from 10.30am to 12.15pm in our Church Hall, and is for babies and toddlers up to the age of 5, accompanied by mum and/or dad, grandparent(s), or carer. Come along and have a chat to other mums. We have lots of toys for all ages, with a carpeted area for the babies to play on.

We have a singing and action rhymes session just before we have our drink and refreshments . We end our meetings with the children (and mums too) marching round playing our various assortment of musical instruments. Please note that your first visit to this group is free.

Important Message from Jenny Evans

Hello All,

Following discussions with the ladies today it has been decided that the sensible thing to do is to cancel Play and Praise for the coming few weeks.

This is obviously due to the coronavirus situation. When the advice/circumstances improve in a few weeks (or however long it takes) we will re-post on here to let you know when we are to restart.

Please can those of you who see this please help circulate the message to those who attend but aren’t on Facebook.

It is also worth mentioning that the Messy Church that had been planned for the 27th has been postponed.

Please look after yourselves and those around you and if anyone is in need of any extra support feel free to use this Facebook Group to contact Play and Praise Friends.

Many thanks and I wish you all the best for what is going to be a difficult time ahead.

Also, please note that Sunday School is closed until further notice but that we will run the family service next week for Mother’s Day (albeit without prize giving).
