For Families

What’s on for families and children in the Whitton team?

Each church has a “Family Corner” with facilities for children, who are very welcome at all services.
Each church runs a “Christingle” service every year – times and dates vary; Aldbourne and Ramsbury also each have a Crib service on Christmas Eve.
The schools come into church for Easter, Harvest, Leavers’ and Christmas Services, etc as do other village groups, especially at Harvest time.

Activities for Children in the Whitton Team

Breakfast Church

Breakfast Church is an all age event which takes place on the 4th Sunday of the month at St Michael’s Church, Aldbourne. We meet for breakfast at 10.15am.  During the service (11am – 11.45am) the children are taken out to enjoy activities in the great outdoors. We all meet back in the church at 11.45am for refreshments. Parents are welcome to accompany their child/ren or stay in church for the service. If you decide to stay for the service one of our DBS checked helpers will look after your child/ren and bring them back to the church at the end of the service.
