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:

  • 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.

There is an unmanned Crèche in the Oak Room (Room1) if you wish to take your younger children out of the service – they are very welcome to stay in the service.

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 logo

First Steps meets on Wednesdays from 10 to 11am during term time. So we have an idea of numbers, we ask you to use the form below each week to let us know you wish to come.

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. 

No food or drink is currently 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 

If you have any questions, please email

    Apply for First Steps on 15th September
