The Parish of South Lafford
Come and Join us!
Children are welcome at all our services - but especially at 11.00 on Sunday mornings. We either have a shorter simpler service (Family Eucharist) or there are special activities available for children to do during the service. The parish has a special team devoted to work with children and young people, and new ideas are always welcome!
Some parents worry that children may make a noise during the service - please don't worry.
We never mind - we'd just be delighted to see you.
Church Music and Drama (MAD)
In September 2018 we started an after-school club at Osbournby School called
Church MAD (Music and Drama) and eleven children performed a play and led the prayers
at the Harvest Festival at Osbournby Church in October. The children helped with
a Children's Remembrance Day service at Aunsby Church (see picture) and at the Santa
Claus service, performing in the children’s play The Selfish Giant at Walcot Church.
Their latest venture was to perform a tableau about Mary the mother of Jesus on
Mothering Sunday (31 March 2019).
Open the Book
Our children's team also goes into Osbournby School to lead the children in performances
of Open the Book (plays based on stories from the Bible). All in all we have great fun!
