First Steps on Wednesday Mornings

First Steps gives parents / carers the opportunity to go out with their babies and under fours and enjoy play and conversation in a Covid secure environment.

Parents and carers will need to book a place in advance each week – see the sign-up form below.  

As we, hopefully, continue to move out of the Covid restrictions, we need to be lightweight and flexible and take things step by step. First Steps will involve a gentle Christian presence through story time and in celebrating seasonal events such as Easter and Christmas.  We are very pleased that Ethel Brokenshire has agreed to lead this group with a small team of helpers.

To maintain a safe, Covid secure environment, we expect adults to wear face masks (unless exempt) and to socially distance. Hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes are available to hand.

Access to First Steps is by the main entrance of the church. First Steps takes place in the hall with access to a secure garden in nice weather. Please bring an outdoor blanket, sunscreen and sun hats for sunny days. Masks aren’t required outside.

Toys are provided for each child, but we encourage toys not to be shared outside of family groups or bubbles. Toys are cleaned and quarantined after each session. No food or drink is provided, but you are welcome to bring your own. Children are parent’s responsibility the whole time. If you have Covid-symptoms or live with someone who does, please don’t attend, and if possible, let us know you can’t attend by emailing
