If you have small children, do come and join us! A space to pray and play, Bertie’s offers parents and carers of all under school age babies, toddlers and children company and activity, with toys, a story and a snack. All are welcome. On Tuesdays we meet from 9.15am and on Thursdays from 12.45pm.

We join in seasonal activities and occasional songs, stories and extra events. In each session there is free play time, and carers can chat and have coffee, but we are parent-led and we ask that you keep a close eye on your children at all times and engage with them. Please could we ask you not to bring snacks with you – we will prepare fruit/veg for the children, but are attentive to allergens. Sitting down together with their fruit and juice encourages learning to socialise.

There is space to bring buggies in and park them in the entrance foyer. Baby change is available. We do not charge for Bertie’s, but we invite donations of £1 a child towards resources and refreshments.

Volunteer leaders and additional helpers are welcome, with DBS clearance or church will happily apply for clearance for you. If you are interested in attending or helping, please email stcuthbertcleadonpark@gmail.com, leave a message on 455 4682 or you can also sign up for termly info here.
