Footprints is a stay & play group run by a team of volunteers from St. John’s Church. We aim to be a fun, safe play space for children, and a welcoming community where parents and carers can make friends.

No need to book – just turn up.

Sessions cost £1, pay on entry.

Volunteers from St. John’s Church coordinate the activities and are there to make sure that you and your children feel welcome, and to answer any questions you might have about Footprints or church. As a church run group, we include Bible stories, characters and Christian values as part of our programme
To try to avoid the spread of Covid-19, we will be limiting the number of attendees, keeping the windows open for ventilation and providing wipes for toy cleaning. Although masks are not required by law in this setting, please consider wearing one whilst mingling with other adults.

Here is what you can expect at a Footprints session:

10:00-10:30    Free Play (adults tea & coffee served)

We have a large selection of toys, varied play spaces, a playdough table and a different craft activity linking to the theme of each week. We sometimes invite guests to some of our sessions (photographer, local businesses etc.) so look out for those special dates.  Refreshments are free – visit the kitchen during this time to get a hot drink if you would like one.

10:30-10:45    Singing & story (children’s drink & snack)

A fun, interactive story & singing time which we encourage everyone to join in if possible. Each week will focus on a different theme from the Bible. During the singing session we provide a fresh fruit snack and drink for the children.

10:45-11:20    Free Play  (adults tea & coffee served)

11:20-11:25    Show & tell and Goodbye

A chance to see what the children have been doing during the session and say goodbye.

12:25-12:30    Tidy up

If you are able to, please help tidying up by putting toys in boxes and bringing equipment to the side door.
