The Church at Bents Green

Babies and under 5s

Sunday morning 10:30am

Usually we begin each Sunday morning service all together in the main Church and then all under-18s are invited to go out to their age-specific group activities. For babies and toddlers aged 0-2 we have a crèche room with baby toys and simple craft activities. Young children aged 2-5 attend a group called ‘Sparklers’ where they enjoy games, crafts, toys and stories about Jesus. See the ‘Children and Teenagers’ page for details of the activities for over-5s. Please feel free to contact us if you have any queries about this session, or just come along and try it out.



Sunrise - Friday 9:15am until 11:15am

This is a stay and play PreSchool Playgroup for 2-4 year olds. It is led by a group of volunteer mums, teachers and carers with current DBS and relevant childcare experience. After the closure of two beloved local PreSchools we wanted to provide a safe educationsl and supportive space to build community, especially for children intending to become future Ecclesall Primary School pupils and their parents. More information is available from Emma on 07707 500226. 


Sunbeams – Wednesday 9:30am until 11:30am

Babies, toddlers and pre-school aged children are warmly invited to attend this play group along with their parent or carers. This takes place in the church hall where there is plenty of room for toys and trundle trucks. For babies there is a large play-mat surrounded by comfy beanbags for the adults. The toddlers love the craft activities and play-dough area. We join together for snack and story-time and finish the morning with a group singing time. The lovely helpers also keep the adults well-looked after with tea, coffee and biscuits. More information is available from Katie on 07464 824462.


Tea, Toast and Time for Thinking – Thursday 10:30am until noon

TeaThis session is really for the parents and carers of small children but is included here because they are welcome to bring along babies and children under 5. Each session starts with tea, toast and chat. We then look at a Bible study or video followed by a time for discussion. The atmosphere is relaxed and we put toys out to keep the little ones entertained after they’ve finished their toast. We usually meet in the upstairs lounge. More information is available from Sue on 0114 2307556 or just drop in.
