CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
At Epsom Methodist Church we have a very active Children and Family programme full of events, videos and groups for children up to 15 years old. Everyone is welcome and there is something for everyone.
Below is some of what we have on offer, click on the links for more details and how you can join in...
We host Messy Church
most months, we are just starting up back in the Church and are excited to see everyone. Messy Church is for anyone from 6 months to 15 years old and is just over an hour of crafts, a drama, games and chat. Head over to the Messy Church page for more details and to sign up.
We've got a selection of FAME
Children and Family videos staring Hannah and "Obadiah the Ostrich", there you can find a series of 15 minute programmes featuring stories and songs for children and families.
We are just starting up Friday for Families @ EMC
on Friday mornings specifically for young children (0-4s) and their parents or carers. This is a space for children to explore and enhance their skills as they grow, along with opportunities to meet and talk to friendly advisors on children's health and development and other areas where parents or carers are looking for advice or support.
Every Summer we run a Holiday Club
where children aged 5 to 15 years old get together. We've just had the Big Green Treasure Machine and we had such a great time with you all, we can't wait until next summer when we get to do it all over again!
In the past we have run a number of special events
for children including Christmas pantomimes, Easter parties, Christingle services and Nativity services. We will keep the website updated with details of anything that is going on so keep an eye out for any news.
EMC has its own Nursery "Ready Teddy Go" for about thirty children aged two and three, they attend for up to 30 hours per week in term time.
We are hoping that soon we can restart Pulse our Junior Church
each week at our 10.30am Sunday Service. This is for children from age 3 up to and including school year 6; the children learn about the Bible and God’s love for every one of us with fun games, crafts, stories and discussions. There is also a creche for children under 3 years old.
We are hoping the Little Monkeys
toddlers play group will be up and running again soon, for more information watch this space.
EMC hosts one of the most active Methodist Church links in the UK with Explorer Scouts, Scouts, Rangers, Guides, Cubs, Brownies, Beavers and Rainbow groups meeting weekly at the church.
In addition, there are several commercial groups
who run children's classes and meet at EMC and provide a wide range of activities for children of all ages.
We take safeguarding
our children very seriously and so all staff and volunteers who are involved with children's activities have DBS clearance and have completed appropriate training.
