First At Four – 1st@4
In 2018, we began a family service at St John's at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon. Like everything else, this had to be abandoned because of the pandemic, but this service has now resumed as from Sunday 4th September.
Each service is based around a theme and consists of a Bible reading, an activity linked to it to help children explore the message, some songs, and some food. There services will last no longer than 45 minutes and is aimed at families with children aged up to 11 years.
The themes and dates for our services this year are as follows:
