St Laurence is delighted to welcome children into church. We fully understand that for many young parents bringing your child to church can cause anxiety but please don't worry. We would far rather have noisy children than no children at all! There is a play area in church, bags of toys and we provide refreshments after the service. Young school-age children are offered the chance for some age-relevant teaching during the middle part of the service but if your preference is to keep your children with you that too is fine. Children are welcome at the altar for a blessing. Between 10 and 11 on a Wednesday morning we're delighted to welcome children into church for play, praise and refreshments. We are also regularly involved in leading assemblies in the Church of England schools in Winslow and Great Horwood.
We have now produced a programme of activities for our children and young people which you can see by clicking here.
We also offer Messy Church several times a year on a Sunday afternoon - details in the Winslow Parish News and the Church Calendar (on the Top Menu).
If there is anything else we can do to help or to make your experience of church easier please do let us know.
