Play and

Stay Group

BRIGHTSPARKS our Play and Stay Group is open to all babies and toddlers and their carers, and offers toys and activities for all pre-school children. There is a small charge of £2.00 per family per session but no booking is required – just come along.

The group meets on Mondays,  Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9.30 am to 11.30 am during term time in the Parish Centre. Children get a free snack, carers are welcome to tea/coffee and toast. Please provide water or a healthy drink for your child.

 General Information

New parents and families with young children may be interested in the programmes of preparation for the Sacraments of Baptism and First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. And for families with children at secondary school, a reminder that our young teens are invited to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Families who have been unable to obtain a place in a Catholic school for their child are offered our full support as they continue to bring their child up in the Catholic faith. Parents of children in non-Catholic schools might be particularly interested in our Sunday School.

Some of our Liturgical Ministries welcome young volunteers. Children who have made their First Holy Communion may like to join our team of Altar Servers. Our Welcoming Ministry has no age limits, and receives help from many of our younger parishioners. And the St Lawrence’s Youth Club (SLYC) welcomes all our young parishioners aged 14+.
