Services for Children and Families

Updated 28 Feb 22

We would like to take this opportunity to tell you about some of the services specifically for children and their families that take place within our team:

Early Bird Service. A short A 10-15 min, informal, dynamic, fun and interactive story  and song service for children and families, which is held in St Bart’s church, Corsham, on the second Sunday of every month at 4pm (except November when it is a week later because of Remembrance Sunday).  The service is followed by supper and some games or craft..  Please see the Early Birds Facebook page for further information.

FAMILY SERVICES.A slightly longer 45 minute service which is designed for all ages with hymns, songs and a talk.

  • At St. Bartholomew’s on the 4th Sunday of every month at 10.00am. (The service uses video clips and songs and prayers projected on a giant screen)
  • At St. Cyriac’s on the 3rd Sunday of every month at 10.30am – called All-Age worship.

These services provide various ways of worship and teachings and may incorporate mini-plays, films and different types of music.

Messy Church restarting 4 Mar 2022

A form of church for children and adults (children must be accompanied by a responsible adult) to enjoy together which is held on the first Friday (TBC) of the month from 3.30pm in Church House, Corsham.  It starts with themed crafts, followed by a short bible reading, song and prayer and ending with a meal.  A fun, social gathering for those unable to attend church on a Sunday.

Church Lads and Church Girls Brigade. If your child is of school age, they are most welcome to join the youth uniformed organisation of the Church of England.  This is held in Church House, Corsham on Wednesdays during term-time, starting at 6.30pm. Read more about the Brigade here

We also have special services to mark not only the main Christian festivals of Easter Day and Christmas but also Mothering Sunday and Harvest Festival for example, details of which will be emailed to you periodically and will be listed on our services page and in Team News.

We hope there is something here that you and your family will enjoy attending.
