The Pram and Toddler services are bouncy and full of life, taking place at Oakham at 2pm on Mondays during term-time – we have about two dozen children registered and generally average 6 toddlers/babies plus their respective adults per week with some weeks reaching a lively 28 people in all. We were very pleased to welcome six of our young members into the church family following their Baptisms last year.
In addition to our bible stories, we have been looking at different materials, working on our colours and counting skills and most importantly making lots of noise and being creatively messy! Our annual picnic is held at the Vicarage, and last summer it was a lovely sunny day and we enjoyed seeing the different teddies and other cuddly toys as we enjoyed the fun!
We welcome some Oakham School pupils, who help us as part of their community service and we are grateful to Margaret Dehqani-Tafti who has joined our team as a pianist. An important part of our work with these young families involves prayer – members of our team meet once a month to pray for them, for each other and for the wider church. A huge thank you goes to everyone involved for keeping our group running smoothly and sharing their gifts and time so generously. In May 2015 we celebrated our 15th birthday.
As always, visitors to our services are most welcome. We would love to have you join in our praise and worship and if you are a child at heart and enjoy a bit of creative mess – come and see what we get up to in our craft slot!
