Holiday Club is back!

MM logo DOUBLE - small



We are running the club in our Church building on The Avenue, Kidsgrove.  It will run from 9.30am to 12.15pm on Monday 22nd – Friday 26th August.  We’ll be rounding off the week at our All Age Service on Sunday 28th.  

It’s going to be great fun – and we'd love you to be part of it!  If you'd like to join us, please book using the form below.

MEGAMAKERS is for 5-11 year olds.  Each day costs only £1 per child (to a maximum of £2 per family per day).  You'll love the fast moving club where you can try your hand at crafts, games, joining in Bible stories, all mixed in with live music from a band and our very own Inventor.

Places are limited, and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  All the leaders are well known to us at St Thomas’ Church, and are DBS checked.  If you have any queries, please phone Iain Baker (St Thomas' Vicar - 772895) or Alan Stanton (Booking Secretary - 816164).

We'll look forward to seeing you!

Consent to attend:
  • If my child has any symptoms of COVID-19 they will not attend the club.

  • I am responsible for my child getting home safely from the Church.
  • In the unlikely event of illness or accident, I give permission for any necessary medical treatment to be administered by the nominated first aider, or by suitably qualified medical practitioners. Should my child require emergency hospital treatment, I authorise an adult leader to sign, on my behalf, any written form of consent required by the hospital authorities, if the delay required to obtain my own signature is considered inadvisable or unnecessary by the doctor or surgeon concerned. I understand that every effort will be made to contact me as soon as possible.

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello


Sundays
Please do join us any Sunday when the church family meets together and praises our Lord God. We hope that through visiting with us you will experience the hope, love and joy that comes from a community of people who love Jesus.

What Happens?
Coming to church for the first time might be a bit scary. So here’s an idea of what happens to make it easier to step through the door!
Our main service is 10.30 every Sunday. When you arrive, someone will say hello and give you a notice sheet which has information about events in the week ahead, about where the toilets are, groups for children etc.
You’ll join us in the church building – which is warm and has comfortable seating. We can happily move chairs to make access easier or for a wheelchair.
Our services include a mixture of traditional and modern music, prayers and a Bible reading. In our 10.30 service, children leave after about 20 minutes to have fun and learn something about Jesus in groups for different ages. The people remaining listen to a talk about the Bible reading. We finish with drinks in the church hall – and children come back to their families there.
At 10.30 we share communion together on the third Sunday of every month. Then, after the service has finished, anyone who wants is welcome to stay for lunch. We each bring food to share with everyone – but there’s always plenty for guests to join in too!

All Age Services
On the first Sunday of every month, our whole church family meets together for an ‘All Age Service’. These are informal and interactive for all ages. Pretty much anything can happen – but people join in with as much or as little as they like – no one is put on the spot or embarrassed! This fun lasts for under an hour, and is the perfect first introduction to Church services for adult and children.

How to get here
If you are travelling by car there is some parking available in the church car park and also plenty of free parking on the road outside. (There is a single yellow line on the road – but you can park there all day on a Sunday.)
If you need a lift to church, contact us and we’ll be delighted to help.
 

Getting Connected


Small Groups While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our Growth Groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out Growth Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a Growth Group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
