Toodles@4 pm is our online (at the moment) toddler church that is aimed at 0-6yrs old (though we do have a few older ladies who like us too). When children join normally, we ask parents to sign them in so that we have details for safeguarding reasons, but online we have taken the names of children who follow us and put them on the toddler church tree so that they can be named and feel part of the group.
Toodles is a dog puppet who has a friend who is a naughty puppy called Fred, who was named by the children in the group.Toddles helps us to worship God together in a friendly inclusive way.
Toddler church is a worship based project that uses the popular tunes of nursery rhymes through out. We have a welcome, and a bible story, we have a instruments song and craft time and we end with prayers, a goodbye song and a blessing. When we can do this back at Church it lasts about 45 mins as we eat tea and toast together before we leave. We would normally take a little pennies collection each week and this money is set aside for a charity of the groups choice.
Its suitable for all baptism families to come and join in our worship in a less stressful way. During lockdown we have been online, and it's been a joy to run this church week after week and to have the children send in the craft efforts for us all to see on our online art show. So come and join Toodles and Fred we would love to see you and put your name on our toddler church tree.
Some of our children planting seeds which was our craft for the week following the story of the Sower in the bible. There are also some pictures of Daniel and the lions den, Our rainbows and baking.
Do join us we would love to have your name on the Toddler church Tree.
