Children at St John's Milford

Age Group 0-5: Monday Club

Monday Club in the church centre

Monday Club is a group for under fives with their parent/carers, from 2-3pm every Monday.

We start with a 20 minute child-focussed service on the carpet at the front of church, with songs and stories, then move into the church centre for refreshments and toys.

This group is led by Jackie Hills.

Age Group 3-13+: Eagles

Eagles in action

Eagles meet in the church centre at St John's during the 10am service every Sunday during term-time (apart from the second Sunday of the month when we all stay together in church for the Family Communion).

Children start with their family in church, then go out to their Eagles group at the end of the first hymn in the service and return to their family in time for communion.

They have fun doing a variety of activities, usually linked to the readings for the day, and then show the congregation their results at the end of the service. They prepare songs, poems or plays to share on special occasions such as Harvest, Christmas and Mothering Sunday.

This group is led by Penny Clark, Karon Sewell and Jackie Hills.

Age Group 0-11 with their families:

Messy Church

Messy Church is held roughly twice a term 4-6pm on a Saturday afternoon, in Milford Village Hall. It is organised in conjunction with Milford Baptist church.

As children arrive they will find a range of messy activities set up, for them to try out during the first hour of the event. We then have 20 minutes of story and song, followed by tea.
