Getting back to ‘Normal’!

September 12, 2021| Past Issues, Uncategorized

Sunday March 15th 2020 was the last time Manor Road Evangelical Church in Stoughton had a ‘normal’ church service – but now things are starting to get back to ‘normal’.

Sadly we also had to cancel our Little Sunbeams Parent & Toddler Group the Friday Ignite Group for Primary School Children and the Friday Youth Group for Secondary School Young People. The church moved as many things on-line as possible, but it’s not the same as it was pre-Covid.

We hope that September will be the month we get back to something like ‘normal’ activities again. Hence we would like to invite you to the following activities at our church, assuming that restrictions will ease sufficiently for them all to take place again at the church.

Sundays 11.15am
All Age Service

On Sunday at 11.15am, every week, we have our All Age Service, everyone is welcome. Tea, coffee & biscuits are served from 10.45am. For approximately the first half hour we sing and enjoy other activities together. Then, for the next half hour we listen to a Bible-based talk, which is relevant and challenging for life in the 21st century. During this time there is a crèche for pre-schoolers, Sunday Club for primary school children and, alternate weeks, a Bible class for secondary school young people. This service is already taking place, with risk assessments and other precautions in place, based on the government guidelines.

Fridays 7.30pm
Youth Group

On Friday at 7.30pm, in term-time, the Youth Group will meet. This group is for Secondary school young people and will start from Friday September 10th. Each week the young people will enjoy a variety of games and activities and also time to socialise. Each session concludes with a short talk on some aspect of the Christian faith.

Week day evening TBC 6.00pm
Ignite Group

One evening in the week (which is yet to be decided) at 6.00pm the Ignite Group, for children in the reception to year 6 age group, will meet in term-time. Children, in that age group, are invited to get together for about an hour of fun activities, including games, crafts, quizzes, Bible stories and prizes.

Tuesdays 9.00-11.15am
Little Sunbeams

Little Sunbeams is for pre-schoolers, and will meet on Tuesdays between 9.00 and 11.15am, in term-time, starting on Tuesday September 14th. Parents may bring their toddlers and babies to the group anytime during the morning. Tea and coffee are available for adults. At approximately 10.15am we have mat and snack time for the children, when we enjoy singing and listening to a Bible story together. (Parents make a contribution of 50p per child, if they can afford this.)
