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.

Services for the Whitton Team of Churches

Activities for Children in the Whitton Team

Breakfast Church

An all age event which takes place on the 4th Sunday of the month at St Michael’s Church, Aldbourne.

Breakfast Church has been created as a result of numerous conversations about children and the church. Some of you want provisions for your kids so that you can attend the service, some of you want family friendly weekend activities and some of you just want an excuse to get outside.

We hope that Breakfast Church provides all this and more!

On the 4th Sunday of the month we meet for breakfast at 10.15am in St Michael’s Church, Aldbourne. During the service (11am – 11.45am) the children are taken out to enjoy activities in the great outdoors. Parents are welcome to join the children or stay in church for the service. We all meet back in the church at 11.45am for refreshments.
