CHILDREN@ST PETER'S CHURCH, BURY ST EDMUNDS
During Coronavirus Pandemic
9:00am – Morning Service (with Holy Communion on 2nd and 4th Sundays)
Families and children are welcome to our services and there are some colouring sheets provided. Due to our limited size and the number of people safely allowed in our building we are not able to provide separate groups at the moment.
Little Fishes, our Parent and Toddler Group, is not able to meet at the moment (click here for more information about Little Fishes in usual times).
In October we had a Pram Service for families who usually attend Little Fishes and we hope to do the same again in December.
In November, we hope to put a short service on the Little Fishes Facebook page

Before Lockdown there were a number of activities for children and families
Our Sunday morning activity for children is “adventurers”. Children stay in church for the first song and then depart to the Hyndman centre for songs, stories and craft. They normally return to church before the end of the service and on Communion Sundays, in time to receive a blessing. *if you can't stay yourself, you're very welcome to drop your children off with us (school age children only). Just bring to the entrance of church at 10.35. Collect from 11.55 (in church) why not stay for a cup of our excellent coffee or tea while you wait!*

'Messy Church' is a way of being church for families involving fun, craft, songs and food! At St Peter's this happens every third Sunday of the month.
At St Peter's we take safeguarding of Children (and vulnerable adults) very seriously. Click here to view our Parish safeguarding policy. Currently we insist that parents are present at all times during children's activities but all leaders are still DBS checked and undergo Level 1 & 2 Diocesan Safeguarding training.
