On Sunday 2 November we launched our Junior Church at St Leonard’s. This is a really exciting new venture and we were amazed and delighted with the response: 19 children joined us on the day!! This is a fantastic start, and a very encouraging beginning for all involved.
Junior Church will meet on the first Sunday of every month during the 9.30 Informal Communion Service. Our children will leave after the opening song, do their own activities in the Tapestry Room and return for Communion. They will explore the Christian faith in relevant and engaging ways, based on the lectionary readings – just like the grown-ups in the main service!
My sincere thanks for everyone involved in enabling Junior Church to happen. It is a precious and important initiative. If you are interested in becoming involved, please talk to Ami Irving.
