Our Toddler Group meets on Friday mornings during term time in the Church Hall opposite St Lawrence Church.

We are a drop-in group for children of toddler age, babies, and mums-to-be, along with their carers, whether they be parents, grandparents, or other carers. Each week we have a craft activity which links in with the Bible story for that week, and we also have other activities such as play, music, and refreshments.

Come and join us for a morning of Bible story, craft, games, play, coffee and chat, make new friends and join the children in their singing.

Cost is £1 per family.

All Age ‘Gathering’ Service @ St Lawrence Church
Aug 25 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Sunday Club @ St Lawrence Church Hall
Aug 25 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Sunday Club is for all children aged 4 to 12 years old. Each week we meet in Gotham Church Hall from 11:00am to 12:00 and we teach the children about God and about Jesus through Bible stories. This is a fun time as well as a time when we can explain what the Bible is saying to us all. Every week the children get to make something, do an activity, sing upbeat and modern songs and say a prayer. There’s always something to eat and drink as well!

On the fourth Sunday of each month the children go into church for what we call our “Gathering” service. This is an informal, family focussed service and is often built around what the children have been learning in Sunday Club. Our Sunday Club children are very much included in this service and have done things like teaching the congregation songs and a rap and they have read out prayers they have written.

If you haven’t been before or if you are just visiting then you are most welcome to join in with the other children.

What the children say:
We have lots of fun.
Sometimes you have to think hard.
I like it when the leaders get the songs all muddled up.
You make good things to take home.
You get to make things with your friends.

Zulu Tradition Event @ St Lawrence Church
Sep 14 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

2 years ago this amazing group came and captivated us with their high energy, passionate performance.

At your request we have invited the amazing Zulu Tradition back to Gotham Church to entertain us with their amazing Zulu dances.

Do join us and be regaled with Zulu culture and heritage through traditional song, dance, drums and drama.

From Durban in KwaZulu Natal, which is just down the road from our partner parish, individual members of this group have performed for the royal family, festivals and national TV in both the UK and in South Africa when performing for the first officially sanctioned Mandela Day at the British Museum.

So what makes them so special? Imagine a youthful, Ladysmith Black Mambazo with high kicks who deliver a heady mix of African harmonies and high-energy, athletic dance. Imagine all this with traditional costumes and drum rhythms.

If you missed them last time they came you won’t want to make the same mistake, and if you did see them then you will want to repeat the experience. We can’t recommend them enough and as there are a limited number of tickets available early booking is essential.

We are proud of the fact that they came as performers and left as friends with the South African saying that they were leaving their hats which means they wanted to come back!

Tickets available from Val Hopkins on 0115 983 0930.
(Ticket includes a glass of wine and nibbles)
