Children and Families in Sanderstead Parish

We welcome children to all our services. Children are also welcome to explore the children's corner at All Saints, with books, toys and crafts.

As lockdown restrictions begin to ease we are planning to start up all our children's events. Toddler groups return on 8th June, a new service for families: "Refresh" will be held in the church hall on the second Sunday of the month, beginning on 13th June and Messy Church begins on 20th June. Services in church will continue to be live streamed, and there will be videos available on our YouTube channel and Facebook page. You can find all our online services on the Sermons page, and more fun for children on the Kids at Home page.

Messy Church

Messy Church comes to Sanderstead on 20th June 2021. It is a monthly activity based service, usually on the third Sunday in term time, for all children up to the age of 12 years, and their parents​, grandparents​ and carers. We run from 4pm - 5.30pm in the All Saints' church halls with ​lots of ​time for activities and crafts based around ​the Bible, ​which the children do with their parents and carers, ​followed by plenty of ​lively ​singing​ and a story. We end our time together​ with a tasty snack and refreshments for all. Children take home everything they have made. There is no charge but donations are welcome to cover costs of food and craft supplies.

We look forward to welcoming you​ to Messy Church. If you have any questions, please email ​children@sanderstead-parish.org.uk

Children's Area in All Saints

Our Children’s Area is located in St Catherine’s Aisle, which is part of the main church. There are toys, books, games and puzzles suitable for babies and older children and a member of our congregation, who has been D & B checked, stays in the Area throughout the service to look after and ensure the safety of the children. Parents are welcome to stay with their children or to come and go during the service. Children can take toys or colouring books from the Children’s Area and sit with their parents if they prefer. There are toilet facilities and a baby changing unit nearby in the vestry.
