Children and              Family Worker                          Hello!


  Summer is fast approaching, and as the sunshine brings a smile to our faces we've got a summer programme to make you smile too. There's plenty going on, so why not come along and try something new yourself. 


You are more than welcome anytime, so why not get in touch today. Often free or with very little cost we put on a variety of activities so keeping checking back for more details of upcoming events, or check out the “regular events” page. Alternatively like my facebook page “FamilyWorker Hanna” and join the fun.


 Upcoming dates and news are displayed here, on our Facebook pages ('FamilyWorker Hanna' and 'Midsomer Norton Methodist Church') and on Church notices. 


And if you need some support or someone to talk to between all these groups you can reach me on familyworker@msnmcc.org 07592735324 or 'familyworker hanna' on Facebook.


See you soon!

Roots Baby and Toddler Group

roots toddlers weds

 Meets every Wednesday in term time, 1-2:30pm at Midsomer Norton Methodist Church

 Every session differs with a variety of activities running alongside free play each week such as crafts, sensory play and cooking. The group then shares snack time before a rhyme and story time. We have a lovely big hall so children can enjoy ride on's and run around all they like, while there is a cosy book area and baby space for the little ones. 

It's £1 a week for Children over one years but the first week is free, so why not give it a try.

Roots Toddler Group sponsored wiggle

On the 9th of May Roots Toddler Group took part in The Giant Wiggle 2018 raising money for Action for Children. It was all about The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We had a great time wiggling, singing and playing with the giant parachute as a group. Afterwards we had a hungry Caterpillar snack time and story session. Thank you to all who sponsored us.

Parent and Carers Coffee Mornings

You are warmly invited to join our group for coffee and cake and a chat every other Tuesday. We will also be watching a short film clip from a Parenting Course called 'Wonderfully Made' and discussing the clip and our own experiences raising children. Including tales that are funny now we can look back on them. There's no judgement, no requirements, no pass or fail or certificate at the end. Just love, humour, support and fellowship. 

We will be gathering Tuesdays 9:30-11am:

This is a newly created post designed to assist in bringing growing numbers of children and families into an active and living faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and to enable them to express that faith through an involvement in the church and local community.
