Children's Ministry


Children's Toddler Pre-School Group

We meet in St Mary’s Rutherwyke Room behind the Medieval Church - follow the red brick path! Noah’s Ark is a morning group for babies, toddlers and pre-school children with their parents or carers, including fun songs, a story, play time and refreshments (toast & fruit).

Please note:

Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak the PCC have, with regret  suspended all social events and activities including the Family Service (1st, 3rd & 5th Sunday's 11:30am) & Noah's Ark Toddler Group (Thursday 9.30am) until further notice. We hope to resume these as soon as possible.
