Every year we hold our annual Volunteer Appreciation Evening. It is a opportunity to say 'thank you' to our amazing team of dedicated, passionate and wonderful volunteers without whom none of the many activities in and outside church could happen. We are truly grateful for they do each day, week and year for the church and community in Chelmsley Wood. We love growing and learning together and look forward to another amazing year of activities to grow deeper in our knowledge of God and love for our neighbour.
Andy Pandys, imaginative and sensory play every
Tuesday 10.00 - 11.30
Andy Pand'y's has had a bit of a revamp and we know you are going to absolutely love and enjoy all the new things. We believe in the importance of creating a space that will encourage children to have fun and use their amazing imaginations! We also acknowledge through conversations with local parents that many of the children in our community really enjoy different sensory experiences. So, with this in mind we have created a play space that will combine the two from soft play, to a reading corner, dressing up, exploration tables, sensory pads and more. We can’t wait to welcome you and your little people to the group. It’s going to be so much fun with play, songs, creative fun and friendship. £2.50 per child. Any questions, get in touch with Briony via the contact us page.
