Together at Eleven

Together at 11

Just after Easter 2017, a new service called ‘Together at Eleven” was launched. It was created mainly to meet the needs of families, but everyone is welcome. Everyone stays together in church for worship, teaching and prayer. To keep everyone interested there’s lots of interaction, fun-filled with lively songs and hands-on activities. We hear a famous Bible story and the whole family can learn together. We keep things punchy so that the service lasts less than 40 mins and is then followed by craft and refreshments. 

Together at 11The service has been a success, attracting a number of new families to St James’s. The PCC has agreed to make it a permanent addition to our services. It is taking a break over the summer holidays but will return in September. The PCC also agreed to advertise for a Children and Families worker to help with this and other outreach work. 

"We had a great start to our new 1100 family service, with a good number of adults and children avidly listening to the storytelling, entering into the fun with the actions, and joining us in our songs of praise, and helping us make our first piece of artwork by drawing themselves."
