Messy Church

Messy Church is a monthly activity based service, usually on the second Sunday of the month, for all children up to the age of 8 years, and their parents and grandparents and carers. Children aged 9 and over can enjoy "Activity Time" in the church halls. We run from 3.30pm - 5pm in All Saints' church 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

Toddler Groups at All Saints

Toddler groups meet in the All Saints Halls in term time, on a Tuesday and Friday morning at 9.30 am. Due to high demand, we are not accepting any children that are not already registered. If you would like to be added to our waiting list, or for more information about joining a toddler group, please contact sarah@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.
