Parents and Toddlers

St John’s Parent and Toddler Group meets during term time on Monday mornings from 9.30am-11.30am, in the rooms at the back of the church. Some grandparents and childminders join us, as do young babies. There are plenty of toys for all the children to play with, as well as regular craft activities and endless cups of tea and coffee for the adults!


Our busiest time is the autumn term, when we have our Toddler Group harvest festival, a fancy dress party at the end of October (our alternative to Halloween), and a Christmas party – with a visit from father Christmas! We also have a ‘Nativity’ in the church during one of the Sunday morning services. In the summer term we have an annual outing – usually to Chester Zoo.



We currently have 20 adults and 25 toddlers/babies who attend regularly – with more babies expected! We aim to be a friendly, welcoming group, providing a safe place for the children to play in and ample opportunity for adults to chat, support and offer each other useful advice and information.
