Junior Church at St Oswald’s
See our pictures in the site’s gallery
Junior Church is for children aged 3 to 10 and under 3’s accompanied by an adult. We meet every Sunday in term time at St Oswald’s Church Hall just before 11am. We explore our faith together through activities, games, songs, drama and fun before joining the congregation in church for Communion and then telling them about what we have been doing at the end of the service. We have a very varied programme which includes some guest speakers, visits to places such as local charities and Hyning Monastery, environmental projects and raising money for good causes. Visiting children are always very welcome.
Our Lent Challenge
For our Lent Challenge we asked every household to give at least one item per week to those in need throughout Lent. This year we collected for Lancaster and District Homeless Action Service which is a day centre for homeless people in the area. We also learnt about homelessness, the causes and the impacts and about the services the charity offers. In April we visited the centre and learned a great deal more.
March Coffee morning
We had a stall and helped raise money for ADM Nepal, a charity which supports two children’s homes in Nepal.
We made gifts for those who mother us before joining the congregation for an “All Together service”. We did lots in the service including leading a signed response to the intercessions and distributing flowers.
We walked through the events of Easter together, learning, sharing, crafting, creating an Easter Garden and transforming a cross with flowers.
What is coming up
We are offering a craft activity and treasure hunt as part of the “Warton Coronation Knees Up” on Monday 8th May.
