For all the family
Some of our activities
Families matter at Eyam and are at the core of our ministry. So throughout the week we have activities to support and encourage families.
From 10.00 - 11.30 am there is "Toddlers", a popular group attended by parents and guardians with their babies and toddlers. With good tea and coffee, juice and biscuits, it is a place where positive relationships are built and where children and parents make friends.
There is normally a craft activity for older children, plus plenty of toys for them all to enjoy. The session ends with some fun songs together in the lounge area.
10.00 am- 12 noon
For all the Eyam community and those from farther afield - where young and old meet together for good tea and coffee.
Once a month, normally on the third or fourth Friday, Messy Church is family-friendly church. We start at 5.30pm in Eyam Church Centre with a delicious home cooked meal. After this there are activities including craft, baking, creative prayer, games and challenges, finishing at about 7 pm with a short time of celebration together, singing praise to God, exploring a story from the Bible and thinking about how this helps us with our everyday lives. It’s interactive, lively, noisy, fun and of course messy! Contributions towards the food are welcome but voluntary (suggested donation £1.50 per person or £5 per family).
Whether you’re used to church or have never been before, come along and you’ll find a great welcome, make new friends and discover more about the Christian faith.
9.00 - 11.30 am
Especially prepared for Dads (or male guardians) along with primary school aged children, and younger, with activities (play, crafts etc) for Dads to take part in with their children.
WLTDO? is open to all dads, male carers and their children within our community regardless of whether or not they are churchgoers.
Normally we meet on the second Saturday of the month in the Church Centre.
Bacon sandwiches, toast, good coffee and tea along with plenty of activities for the kids.
At Eyam Parish Church Families Matter, and for that reason through WLTDO? we want to encourage dads... because being a dad matters.
No need to book. Just turn up.
