Welcome to Emmanuel Babies and Toddlers!
For the time being, due to the Covid situation and volunteer capacity we are limiting numbers each week to keep everyone safe, so you will need to book on EventBrite from the Saturday before the Monday session. There is no obligation to come every week. We do keep a register for health and safety reasons and in case of a fire.
When we meet: Mondays 09:30 – 11:30 (term time only)
Cost: £4 per family of up to 2 children (drinks included)
If you wish to contact us with any enquiries, please email: [email protected]

09:30 - We start the session with free-play in the church with its renovated floor and new, comfortable chairs. We have separate areas for babies as well as areas for toddler active play and reflective play.
Hot/cold drinks and biscuits are available for adults and children throughout the morning from the kitchen hatch.
10:55- We have a group tidy up time, all the toy boxes are labelled and it would be really great if you could help the volunteers make sure the toys are put back in the right boxes and taken to the Coffee area to be put away. Please collect a carpet/plastic square for your toddler to sit on during the story and song time.
11:00 - We form a big circle of seat squares in the church for the children, with adults sitting behind them on the floor to encourage participation in the Bible story and songs. Each session will take a theme such as Being thankful/Saying sorry/Showing love and will involve a variety of storytelling methods. The aim is to help build a mutually supportive community after so many months of isolation.
11:30 - End of session. Don’t forget to book next week when it goes live a few days before!
