Little Fishes

Little Fishes is the church's parent and toddler/baby group. We are a very friendly group who meet on Monday and Tuesday mornings at 9.30 am until 11.00 am in the Parish Hall on Well Lane, Whiston. During each session we have lots of toys for free play, a weekly craft session, bible stories; refreshments and - to end each session - we sing, dance and have a short prayer time. Come along, meet new friends and have some fun!

Starfish Gang and Minnows

Starfish Gang meet weekly at 9.45 am on a Sunday morning (except for the second Sunday of the month, when we welcome everyone to the All Age Family Service). We meet in the children's room, which is upstairs at the back of the church. The Starfish Gang is for school age children and young people where we come together for a fun time of bible stories, crafts and prayer before joining the congregation for the second half of the main service.

Minnows is a special area for parents/carers with babies and toddles in the downstairs meeting room during the main services. Toys and books are available to use from 9.45 am every Sunday Morning.
