Children’s Liturgy & Creche

Children’s Liturgy

Each Sunday within term time (based on Holy Cross School term dates) Children’s Liturgy is lead by volunteer catechists, and parent parishioners.

This is an important mission within the life of our Parish. It enables our children to learn about the life of Our Lord contained in the New Testament. It also introduces them to the important ways in which we, as Catholics, are to live our lives by following the life and teachings of Jesus and the role which God plays in all our lives.

There are two Children’s Liturgy groups – ages 3-5’s and 6-8’s. A Creche is also provided for under 3’s. See below.

Being always conscious of Safeguarding, there are always two DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) accredited adults in the room with each group.

Children are encouraged to participate, enjoy and respond to the readings of the day.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer helper then please do contact the parish office.

Creche

During term time (based on Holy Cross School dates) there is a Creche provided for under 3’s at the Sunday 09:30 Mass. This allows parents to leave their children in a safe environment for the duration of the Mass. Parents drop off their child before mass and pick up at the end of Mass. All volunteer helpers are also DBS accredited.

Of course, children are always welcome to stay within the church to participate in Mass with their families. However, you are asked to take your child to the back of the church behind the glass wall if they are overly disruptive. If you bring toys into the Church, please ensure they are not of the noisy variety and preferably soft not hard!
