Explorers picnic

This small and friendly group gives the pre-school children at St Mary's their first taste of how it feels to enjoy fellowship together!  

We go out from the service after a few songs, Bible reading and a children's talk. We start off sitting in a circle sharing our news and doing a simple game. Then we open up our "Beginners' Bible" and read a story together.  Then it's time for more exciting activities: we love making things, whether that be crafts, music or mess! 

Three-year olds who are toilet trained are welcome to come on their own whilst carers are in the service, but we are always happy for their grown-up to stay with them if they would prefer.  As well as our Sunday morning group we enjoy picnics together.  We're very flexible about when children move on to Trailblazers - most Explorers like to stay with us during their Reception year at school too.
