The Parish of Abbots Langley

Children

Seekers

begins on Sundays in St Lawrence at 9.30 am; the children leave after the Gloria to go to their respective groups while the Parish Communion continues; they return at the Peace.  On the second Sunday of each month everyone is in church together for all-age worship.

At Seekers children share the Christian faith in an enjoyable, informal and fun way. They have the opportunity to learn through games, stories, craft, drama, music and discussion about the key features of Christianity.

They all come back into church to receive a blessing or if they have been admitted to Communion to receive the bread and wine, and to tell the congregation what they have learnt.

After the service, which normally finishes by 10.45 am you and your children are welcome to join us in the Church Hall for a drink and a chat.

Seekers is for children aged 3 to 11 years old.  Families from all parts of the Christian community, and those with no church background who want to give their children an introduction to Christianity that is informal, fun and with no pressure, are welcome.

As well as meeting on a Sunday morning they organise occasional workshops for the children; and the Seekers party is the highlight of the year!

They look forward to welcoming you and your children.

The parish operates a child protection policy for all its work with young people.  To find out more about this, click here for a summary of our policy, or here for a copy of the document 'Parish Safeguarding Policy'.

 

Youth Choir

St Lawrence Youth Choir meets in church on Friday evenings from 6.15 to 7.00 pm during term time.  It is open to children/young people from the age of 7 upwards.

They aim to have fun while providing some basic musical tuition, and introducing the children to a variety of choral music, secular as well as church.  The choir is able to contribute to worship as part of the Second Sunday Service at 9.30 am each month, and occasionally at weddings and baptisms, and festival services.

Please look at the flyer.

 

Messy Church

takes place on the second Wednesday of every month at the Methodist Church and Hall in Langley Road. 

Starting between 3.30 pm and 4.00 pm it gives children and parents/carers time to come from the school pick up.  They finish around 6.00pm.

It provides an opportunity for children, up to the age of 11 years, along with their parents/carers to enjoy fellowship, craft activities (often messy!), worship and a meal.  Each meeting has a different theme based round a story from the Bible.  It is noisy and fun and they simply ask for a donation towards the food.  Parents with a baby in tow often bring their own baby food which can be heated if required.

If you are coming for the first time please make contact via the Contact Us page or telephone the Church Office (01923 261795) so they have some idea of numbers for catering.
