What is it?
Little Lights is a volunteer led Baby and Toddler Group, hosted by St John the Baptist Church in Earlestown.
We do free-play, crafts, songs and bible stories. We also serve tea/coffee and snacks which are included in the entry cost.

When?
9.30-11am - Tuesday mornings. We often run during half-term holidays as well.

Who can come?
All children up to school age are welcome, and must be accompanied by an adult. Carers are welcome too. On your first visit we will ask you to fill in a registration form for each child.

Does it cost?

Cost is £2 per group of children. So whether you come with 1 or 4 children, the cost stays the same. The money is simply to cover the cost of heating the church, and the refreshments. Whenever we make a bit of profit it get's invested back into the group to make it even better.

Why do we do it?
Our church cares deeply for Earlestown and Newton-Le-Willows. We want to love and serve our community, and we work hard to make sure Little Lights is a genuinely warm and welcoming place, where people can receive support and friendship, and children can play and thrive.

Seven years ago we at St John's formed a bereavement support group. We meet in our annex (at the side of our church) on the third Thursday of every month between 2 and 4pm.

We formed the group for both men and women of any age or denomination who have lost someone they loved. We felt there are people who may need to meet others in a similar situation, but do not know where to begin. We have several helpers in the group who have lost someone of their own and understand what it feels like to lose a loved one.

We sometimes do quizzes and various other activities. Also the occasional trip out and in December we go for a Christmas meal. Tea/coffee and cake is included in our monthly meetings. If you feel you would like to get out once in a while we would love to see you.

Sometimes the hardest part is coming through the door, if you would like that to be made easier, you can contact: Barbara 224647.
