CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE IN ALL SAINTS CHURCH

CHILD PROTECTION

We take our children’s safety seriously. All our workers with children and young people are CRB checked. A copy of our Child Protection Policy is in the Red Book at the back of Church.

CHILDREN IN CHURCH

Children are very welcome to all services at All Saints' and we hope they will join in and participate in worship with us, although some services are more appropriate for younger children.

You are welcome to bring quiet toys for younger children to play with during worship. There are toy bags provided in a basket near at the back of the church. You will find additional books underneath the hymn book stand. Please don't worry if your children make a little noise.

Once they are older children are encouraged to help with reading and leading prayers, singing in the choir and playing in the music group.

Once a month (usually the third Sunday) we have All Age Worship This is a 'child friendly' service to which children are encouraged to come, but it is specifically designed to enable the whole Church to worship together. There is a children's corner with activities.

COMMUNION AND CONFIRMATION

Children aged 7 upward, who worship with us regularly, may be prepared to receive Holy Communion if parents and children both wish it. Young people are encouraged to prepare for Confirmation. You should contact the Team Rector about either of these.

BABIES and TODDLER GROUP

On Monday mornings from 10-11.30 am the Lay Pastoral Assistants welcome parents with babies and toddlers under school age to come to the Church for coffee, fun and fellowship.

ALL SAINTS C of E (VA) PRIMARY SCHOOL

Whiteparish is fortunate to have a thriving little primary school, which caters for around 140 children. This draws young families to move into the village to benefit all. There is also a pre-school on site for children from the age of 2, providing continuity for the children.

The School has a very active PTA which organises many social functions throughout the year, which are open to everyone in the village. These include plays, quiz evenings, dances, and a huge firework display.

The church and school combine their forces in the Summer to run a Grand Carnival and Fete on the Memorial Ground. This is a major fundraiser for both, and brings the whole village together.

The school welcomes help and involvement from people in the village and there are opportunities to become Foundation Governors.

PASTORAL CARE IN THE COMMUNITY

For all major services, such as marriages, baptisms and funerals your first point of contact should be either the Revd Jane Dunlop or the Churchwarden, Jane Legat (884600), who will be pleased to help you contact the right person.

However there may be other times when you feel the need of some help you may like to contact one of the Lay Pastoral Assistants who are attached to All Saints' Church, or one of the Clergy.

A Lay Pastoral Assistant is a person who engages in pastoral ministry on behalf of the local church. They are trained volunteers who are licensed by the Diocese to carry out many pastoral needs like visiting the housebound or sick, supporting the bereaved or visiting families with special needs. Home Communion can also be distributed.

The lay Pastoral Assistants in Whiteparish are trusted members of All Saints' Church who believe in the power of prayer, are able to listen and care for others and, most importantly, are able to keep confidences.

Should you need their help, please contact one of them.

Patricia Boyle (01722 710570), Paul Gooderham (884528), Belinda Knapman (884468), Jane Lax (884434), Shirley Near (884386), Lynn Walworth (01725 513738)
