The Heart of God at the Heart of our Community

We are pleased that our Crofton Kids groups for children and families are able to meet in-person again.

Children’s Groups on Sunday Mornings

Crofton United Logo

Our children’s groups meet during the Holy Rood 10am service. Your children are welcome to come to the following groups:

  • Wrigglers (babies and toddlers) meet in the Oak Room (Room 1). You are welcome to use the Wrigglers room at any point during the service but it is only staffed when the children are in their groups.
  • Scramblers (pre-schoolers from age three) will meet in the Maple Room (Room 2) 
  • Crofton United (infants and juniors) will meet in the Hall.

All children are welcome to attend the groups, whether you regularly attend Holy Rood or not.

Follow our Crofton Kids team (wearing blue team T-shirts) and they’ll direct you to appropriate groups.

First Steps on Wednesday Mornings

First Steps meets on Wednesdays from 9:30 to 11am during term time. No need to book, you are welcome to turn up.

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

First Steps involves a gentle Christian presence through story time and in celebrating seasonal events such as Easter and Christmas. Ethel Brokenshire leads this group with a small team of helpers.

First Steps meets in the hall which is accessed by the garden entrance.  The hall is a big space and when the weather is fine, we use the garden as well. 

Parents and carers are asked to pay £1 per family to contribute towards tea and coffee.

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 

If you have any questions, please email
