South Chadderton Church Playgroup

Sadly after 50 years, Playgroup will no longer operate as there are now not enough children to make it viable. 

Shirley has led the Playgroup team for
over 23 years and there are many children and their parents, 
who have benefited
from the care, encouragement and love they have received whilst attending. 

The Playgroup
team have given the children a safe place to grow in their early years, to be valued
and respected as little people. 

The church would like to thank Shirley and her
present helpers, though there have been many more over the years, Margaret Heywood, Ann Ogden, Jean Toms, Joan Holland, Sue Hulston and Leean O’Keeffe  
for their faithful long-term commitment to Playgroup and it's children. 

We are so
proud to have you in our church. 
May God richly bless you and keep you in the
coming months and years.

3Generate 2019 | 22-24 November at Pontins, Southport

3Generate is an action-packed and inspiring weekend for hearing the voice of children and young people across the Methodist Church, focussing on fun, faith and friends. To see what happens visit our YouTube channel 3GenerateTV.

Bookings for the event have now opened and tickets have been selling well!

To ensure this year's event is a success and to offer the children and young people who attend the best possible experience, lots of volunteers are needed to help in many different ways, for example:

- Chalet hosts, offering hospitality and support in the accommodation blocks
- Roving youth team, providing pastoral care to children and young people
- Stewards, to keep an eye on the site - working either the day or the night shif
- Venue teams, helping to deliver the smooth running of the programme in one of our venues
- Set-up/take-down, giving practical support with making the venue as exciting and attractive as
possible ahead of the event - or helping to pack everything away afterwards...
… and many more! Please do consider what you might be able to offer, or ask others you know to think about volunteering their time. Or simply book your place to attend.

The Playtime National Conference, run by Care for the Family, gives us that chance to take a step back, gather together and dream big for the year ahead.

The line up includes some fantastic speakers such as 
Rob Parsons
Katherine Hill, Bob Hartman, 
OneWay Puppets UK and Mark Chester
(Who Let the Dads Out). 
There will also be an extensive choice of workshops, such as:

The importance of dads in our groups
How do we respond effectively to a child’s difficult behaviour
How can we support families who are struggling with mental health issues.
How to support parents in helping their children nurture a faith that lasts

The day will include time to worship, share and pray together as well as providing an exhibition zone and shop packed with resources. Lunch and refreshments are all included.

So, whether you are involved with our young people by being part of one of their groups, helping lead services or just want to know how we can begin to develop one of the above areas more fully why not sign up.

We are hoping a group of us can go so that we can share transport and reduce costs.
