Pre-school children

Third Mondays of the month 2pm - 3pm The Ark in St Giles Church Uley

The Ark is a monthly service especially for under 5s, mums, dads & carers.  
We come together to share our news, to hear a story, to pray and to sing a couple of action songs.  After our short time of worship we move to the St Giles Room and for tea and homemade cakes - a lovely time for the children to play together and for the grown ups to get to know each other, to share our timeless experiences of nurturing our children and each other.
Two special occasions are the wonderful crib service in December and our July Teddy Bears Picnic on the Rectory lawn when the sun always seems to shine for us.
It's very special to meet as a multi-generational group aged from tiny babies to great-grandparents in their eighties.


Tuesdays 10am - 11.30am Jimmy's Toddler Group (term time)

Jimmy's is held in the Parish Centre of St James church. All preschool children are welcome to come. Why not come along and enjoy a chat with other parents over a cuppa, while your toddler has a great time taking part in action games, craft, wet and messy play, stories and loads of other brilliant activities designed specifically for their age group. Just turn up and join in the fun!


Wednesdays 10am - 1pm The Tab Family Cafe (term time)

We are based at Dursley Tabernacle. We serve fresh coffee and cake, and have a safe space for young children to play. You’re welcome to drop in for a quick brew – or spend the morning with us – everyone is welcome. There is no cost to come into the cafe – and all refreshments are accessibly priced. 


Thursdays 9.30am once a month Little Church at St George's Cam 

A midweek service for children aged 0-5 and their parents, grandparents and carers.  The service includes singing, prayer, Bible stories and craft and is followed by a social time with snacks. The service takes  in the church, on the Thursday following the Family Celebration Service (which is on the first Sunday of the month).
