Children & Young Families
We have a wide range of activities for children and youth of all ages. Please see below for more details…
During our Sunday 10.30am services we have two Sunday School groups. These run every week except the 1st Sunday of the month where we have our Kids Worship service in the afternoon (see below).
Members of our Children & Youth team will be at the back of church before every 10.30am service to get your children registered and let you know more about our groups if it’s your first time. Children usually start the service with their parents and go to their groups during the first song.
First Steps – This group is aimed at ages 0-5 and meets downstairs at the back of church. Each session has some structured content including songs and prayers, followed by free play. Parents are welcome to stay with their children in this group if they wish.
Bible Explorers – This group is aimed at ages 5-11 and meets upstairs. Each session focuses on a particular bible story that we learn about together, and includes prayers, crafts and games.
Both groups will offer a drink and a biscuit while they meet – we will ask you about any allergies or dietary requirements when you register your child(ren).
On the first Sunday of every month we have our Kids Worship service, aimed at families with children primary age and younger. The service has games, crafts, action songs, a bible story and lots of fun. This service is designed specifically for children so is very relaxed and wriggly children are very much welcomed – it’s very informal and children are free to move about as they wish.
After the service, there is time for the kids to play while the grown-ups share a tea/coffee and have a chat.
Booking is essential for these services so that we can prepare your craft materials in advance.
ABC Baby and Toddler Group
Who are we? ABC Baby and Toddler group is a popular local group for children aged from birth to 4yr olds with their parents,grandparents or carers.
We can welcome up to 25 adults plus children . The group is run by volunteers, many of whom attend Pudsey Parish Church.
What do our sessions look like? Our sessions include free flow play, story time (some from the Bible too) and singing as well as a cuppa and a biscuit. We have a variety of toys available including ride-ons, walkers, wendy house, slide and tunnel as well as smaller toys such as cars, duplo, puzzles and games.
At the end of each term, we have a short fun church service just for us.
For babies, mats will be provided and a selection of baby toys, although you may wish to bring your own if your baby is teething, wipes will be available if you need them to clean any of our toys after use.
If your child has specific dietary requirements please bring your own snack for them to be safe.
Where and When? We meet during term time on Monday and Tuesday mornings, 9.30am-11.15am at. Pudsey Parish Church, LS28 8BE. You’re welcome to vary which day you come but please only come to one session per week. This is because we are an extremely popular group and booking once per week makes it fair for everyone… Thank You!
The cost is £2 for 1st baby/child, 50p for any additional children over 6 months old and 50p for each extra adult attending.
