Children

‘Little Fishes’ - Parent and Toddler Group

This is a weekly gathering for parents/carers and their babies and small children.

They meet from 10 - 11.30 am on Monday mornings in the parish hall library. We sing, we play, we chat, we enjoy each other’s company and we always end with our ‘Little Fishes’ prayer. There is a small charge of £1.50 to cover coffee, drinks and biscuits.

‘Stories and Songs’

Half an hour of action songs and stories from the Bible - as we begin to learn about Jesus - is held for the under fives and their carers at 2pm on the first Tuesday of every month in church followed by play and refreshments in the parish hall library.

Church Club

Half an hour of Praise, Prayers, Stories and Activities is regularly shared with the children at St. Mark’s Primary School, Highcliffe. The name “Church Club” was given by the children.

The sessions are led by various members of both St. Mark’s and St. Michael’s Church Hinton Admiral and take place during free time, after lunch.

Church Club is fun and lively, and brings living knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ to youngsters.

Seasonal Events

There are children’s workshops on the Saturdays preceding Easter and Harvest when the children prepare seasonal items appropriate to the occasion.

At Christmas an annual Christingle service is held early in December (see Calendar for dates each year.) The children also help to decorate the church Christmas Tree in a Christmas workshop and a children’s crib service is held at 5.00pm on Christmas Eve.
