The Parish of South Lafford
Come and Join us!
Children are welcome at all our services. 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.
The parish has a special team devoted to work with children and young people, and new ideas are always welcome!
We are very excited to be launching our new once a month family friendly time - Fun@4 on Sunday 12th January in the vestry at St Andrew's Church, Folkingham.
Come and join us for 45 mins of fun, stories and singing, ending with some food - in the vestry at 4 pm.
This month, January, we will be looking at the biggest and best gift ever given, so come along with something you were given for Christmas to show to everyone.
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!
