Children

Our children are also called to know and love Jesus and to share that love with their family and friends. We recognise and value the efforts parents make to share their faith with their children and we welcome families with children and babies to our parish. On Sunday mornings at 9.30am we have a Mass especially for families with young children. Families choose this Mass for many reasons:

Busy Lizzies’ Creche

The creche is open to children aged 2.5 – 5 for the duration of the Mass. It is staffed by trained volunteers, and the creche session includes: free play, Bible story, song, and craft. Parents have a pager so that they can be called if their child needs them during Mass. There are a limited number of places and children need to be registered for the creche. You can do this by emailing children@stelizabethschurch.org.uk

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

For children in years 1 and 2, a Children’s Liturgy of the Word is offered during the Sunday Mass. Children process from the Mass after the Introductory Rites and return at the Offertory. Children’s liturgists present the Liturgy of the Word at a level appropriate for the children’s age

Family Choir

Children in year 3 and above are invited to arrive at 9:15am before Mass starts to learn the music for the day’s Mass. They sit in the font with their parents for the duration of the mass.
