Stay & Play Service, and cafe on Wednesday mornings

For over a year now we have hosted a morning coffee and play session with the Stay & Play Service on Wednesday mornings.  We meet from 9am in the Large Meeting Room, followed by a low-key service at 9.30, which is easy to bring a baby or small child along to.   We provide fresh coffee, tea, squash, biscuits and sometimes cake plus toys.   The service lasts about half an hour, with musical instruments and fruit for the children.  If you are interested in joining us, please do come along, you will be made very welcome. And if you know of anyone who might be interested, do let them know.
