TIVERTON UNITED CHURCH
Our Twinkles toddler group is lively and friendly. It began in 2005 and was started after several members of the Church surveyed a housing estate to ask what people felt was needed in the area. Within a year, however, we had so many people coming that we decided to have a second session on a Thursday and the group was moved to the bigger hall upstairs.
The group runs on Monday and Thursday mornings 10am -12pm (term time) and is well supported by volunteers.
As the original children, who attended Twinkles, got to preschool age the idea for Tiverton Little Stars Preschool began, this opened in 2008 and is run in a purpose-built setting within the Church.
Please see their website for more details: http://www.tivertonlittlestars.co.uk/
Breakfast Club is run by volunteers and invites parents and children from both Twinkles and Tiverton Little Stars, and anyone else who would like to come for a chat and toast, to breakfast on a Thursday between 8.45 – 9.30am (term time) supported by the Tesco Fare Share Food Scheme.
When the Children’s Centre lost funding for their group Bumps and Babies it was moved to Tiverton United Church and is now run by our outreach worker and Church volunteers.
It runs on a Thursday afternoon 1pm – 2.30pm (term time), after the Twinkles Toddler Group, and is free.
Children of all ages are welcome to Story Box, to learn about Bible stories told in an interactive format. It is run on the third Sunday of each month alongside our morning worship at 11am. If you arrive at 10.30am you would be welcome to join us in the Church for coffee!
We try, with other churches in the town and in the surrounding area, to be of service in the community, to be active witnesses to the Gospel and encourage all who are seeking to know more about the Christian faith to join in our activities.
