Together at Eleven

Together at 11


Our 11am service began in April 2017 and is proving popular, with many families coming every week. Together at Eleven is a service with the needs of children and parents particularly in mind, though everyone is welcome. It is a shorter, punchier service, a Bible story aimed at youngsters and contemporary singing, all presented from the big screen.

The service is fun-filled with lively songs and hands-on activities. We listen to a famous Bible story with the whole family learning together. We also keep things punchy so that the service is less than 40 minutes long, and is followed by crafts and refreshments, with time for the children to play while the parents chat over coffee. During the craft activities the children have made Sarai & Abram finger puppets, a serpent from the Garden of Eden, a creation bookmark, a rainbow to remind us of God’s promises, and much more. The craft is so important because it is a piece of the Bible that they take home, maybe hang on their wall, and it reminds them of the Bible story they’ve heard and what they’ve learned about the people of God. 

This is such an important ministry because we are able to tell parents, come just as you are. If your child needs to wander around during the service a bit, that’s fine. If they need to hold on to the shakers a bit longer, well we celebrate their zeal for worship. If the parents just need five minutes for a cup of coffee, we we’ll do some crafts with the children while you drink that cup. If you are new to church, or just want a simpler structure to your worship, this is an accessible way to experience the love of God and grow your faith with like-minded people.

So do come along and see for yourself.

"We had a great start to our new 11am family service. A good number of adults and children avidly listened to the storytelling, entered into the fun of the actions, joined in the songs of praise and helped make pieces of artwork."
