Families and Children

We believe that church is for people of all ages.  We appreciate that the pressures of modern life mean that Sunday presents many different options and dilemmas, and we are constantly searching for ways to help you and your family engage with God and our church family.  Our different churches find themselves in different contexts, and the programme at each one evolves to suit that context.

Corsham has a monthly ‘Early Birds‘ service, and a Mother’s Union Group which promotes family values.

Other services for Children and families are available here.

Lacock has a Junior Church

Gastard, like all our churches is particularly looking for ways to engage with the families in that village.  They join with Neston for the Family Service on the 4th Sunday.

For older children, see our Youth pages

Messy Church in Church House, Corsham is for families, involving fun and crafts, and is found across the world.  Its values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.  It starts with themed crafts, followed by a short bible reading and song, finishing with a meal.  Messy Church is for all ages and not restricted to members of St Bart’s; children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.  See more here.
