Junior Church

Junior Church usually meets every Sunday during school term time, and has three different age groups within it. The three groups meet separately in different parts of our building on Sunday mornings. The children gather with their parents, and leave shortly after the start of the service, for their own activities.

Later, before the end of the service, the children return to share with the adults what they have been doing. The service then concludes, and everyone enjoys refreshments together before going home.

Junior Church is a time of fun and fellowship for our younger church members, and visitors are always welcome to join in the fun. If you'd like to come along and see what happens, just turn up, or contact us in advance if you want to check the details.

Children from other churches who are temporarily in our area will be very welcome to come and join us whilst in Acton; we enjoy having visitors, and hearing about other churches.

Sunday Creche

People of all ages are welcome in our church.  
Young children are expected to make noise and to move around - that's what little ones do! We expect it at home, so we expect it at church as well.

An area to the side of our church, through an open archway, has been carpeted and made secure and comfortable for very young children. This creche area is available for parents and young children at all times during worship. If your child is distracted and needs to crawl around, or play, just move to the creche. You won't be far from everyone else, and you'll still be able to hear and see the service, and to join in.

The creche is equipped with soft toys, crayons, paper, and other equipment to help keep young children entertained. There is no need to worry - you can come and go from the creche at will. There is also a baby-changing facility.

Parents & Toddlers Coffee Mornings

Parents with young children (babies and toddlers) need opportunities to get out of the house, and also to socialise with each
other, and share notes. At the same time, we know how beneficial it is for the children, from the earliest possible age, to learn to play and socialise together, in a safe and engaging setting.

In April 2019, immediately after Easter, we will be launching St Gabriel's new drop-in coffee mornings for parents and toddlers. There will be coffee and tea for the grown ups, cakes available for those needing a treat, and toys to distract the children whilst their parents chat and share news. Everyone will be welcome. Further details will be posted here soon.
