BUGGY PRAISE 2002-2018

It is with sadness that we have held our last Buggy Praise service after 16 years of providing a time for young children and their parents/carers to worship informally in church. It has been a joy and a privilege to meet so many wonderful children and their families.

Since last September we have had only 2 or 3 children attending, the falling numbers have been impacted by the 30 hours free child care now available .
The team - Dorothy Smith, Emma Scott, Helen Armitage and Sheila Roth - would like to thank all who have supported them, especially the Mothers Union members, Margaret, Jean, Mary and Sheila who provided hospitality and welcome.
We shall continue to hold our special picnics at Easter, summer and Christmas.
The Easter picnic will be on 3rd April (11-1pm) in church
