On the first Saturday of every month (including school holidays) we meet in St Botolph's Church Hall between 9.30-11.30. Fathers and children up to age 8 are very welcome to enjoy our mini bouncy castle, Lego table, art and craft area, book corner, Scalextric tracks and more. Dads get bacon sandwiches and tea/coffee. Children have fruit, cheese, biscuits and squash. Just £3 per family.
A traditional Parish Eucharist service in the beautiful and ancient setting of St. Botolph's. The worship follows the modern Catholic tradition of the Church of England with a reverence for the Blessed Sacrament (the Body and Blood of Christ in form of bread and wine), lovely music from our robed choir and thought-provoking sermons which encourage all to reflect on their relationship with Jesus Christ and with our friends and neighbours. St Botolph's is open to all and our worship is accessible and friendly. We particularly love to see families in this service.
A short Said Eucharist followed by a simple lunch of soup and rolls, tea and coffee. This service takes place during a time when the church is open for prayer and reflection. It is a lovely chance to experience the calm spirituality of St. Botolph's with some friendly people over lunch.
This service contains all the elements from a traditional Parish Eucharist, but it is especially tailored to suit all ages, including children and families. In this service, the children remain in church rather than leaving the service for Sunday School. The sermon is replaced with a more informal talk and the hymns are usually well-loved by all generations.

Our new Junior Church is an exciting addition to our weekly worship; children from age 5-11 make their way into our church hall just after the parish Eucharist begins at 10.00. They will be led in worship including games, bible readings, stories, craft activities and more. Our Junior Church leader is Gill, our Children and Families Missioner and is assisted by an able group of helpers (all with DBS documentation up to date). For children under 5 we have toys and books in a dedicated area of the church where they may be supervised by parents and carers.
