Anchor Tots meet during school term time on alternate Friday afternoons from 1pm – 2:30 pm, just in time to pick up siblings from school.

Anchor Tots costs just 50p per session. Story time, songs and healthy snacks are provided each session.

Anchor Youth and Explorers

Anchor Youth Club runs for youth aged 8 + years old at a cost of £1 per person, per session.  Youth may like to bring some extra money along to buy snacks  from the tuck shop.  Water, squash and biscuits will be provided free of charge.

Sessions will be on Tuesdays 6.30pm – 8pm fortnightly during term time.

Parents will receive a sheet of dates for the term when you sign up for your child.

Youth can expect to:

  • Play community games
  • Be creative with design, construction, arts and crafts
  • Enjoy a range of books and games
  • Go on occasional trips out as a whole group
  • Join in chat times and make friends
  • Enjoy snacks from the tuck shop
  • Be involved in raising money for local charities
  • Basically have lots of fun

Mobile phones may be brought to the club (for emergency use only) but will be collected at the start of the club for safekeeping and given out at the end.  There is currently no wifi access at the building.

In order to register and cater for any specific medical needs e.g. allergies, please print off the accompanying registration form, complete and bring to your first session.  The more adults that can support and volunteer to help at the club, the more youth we can have in the group.  Adults will have to be able to provide current DBS certificates.  Parents will be asked to collect their children at the end of the session at 8pm.  We look forward to seeing as many of you that can make it.

What is Messy Church?

Messy Church is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality.

It’s primarily for people who don’t already belong to another form of church.

It meets at a time once a month (first saturday of each month – starting 1st February 2020) that suits people who don’t already belong to church.

It typically includes a welcome, a long creative time to explore the biblical theme through getting messy; a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, games and similar; and a sit-down meal together at tables. All elements are for, and should include, people of all ages, adults and children. It’s fun.

It’s a church for people at all stages of their faith journey and of any age – a congregation that is as valuable and worthy of investment as any of your other congregations.

It models and promotes good ways of growing as a family: a nuclear family, an extended family, and a global and local church family.

Its aim is to introduce Jesus, to give an opportunity to encounter him and to grow closer to him.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) UpdateMessage from Pr Ben Davies

Worship at Anchor Community Church will start this coming Sunday 19th July from 10.30am to 12pm.  In order for things to run smoothly, please follow the  guidelines below as closely as possible.  Let’s all work together as a team to ensure that everyone is kept as safe as possible.  We thank God for His provision and protection so far. (Psalm 91)

 

·      If displaying any symptoms of COVID-19 please do not attend the service.  Get tested and self isolate for 7 days.

·      Enter the building via the white double-glazed doors (main entrance) or the fire exit with ramp for those unable to walk too far.

·      Upon entering the building please thoroughly wash your hands using the sinks in the toilet areas – try to use the same sink each time you wash your hands and use the same toilet where possible.

·      Hand gel, tissues and antiseptic wipes will be available in the entrance hall and in the hall.  However, we would encourage you to bring your own small bottle of hand gel and tissues.

·      Greet each other verbally or with an elbow bump – no shaking hands or hugging.

·      You will be asked to complete a track and trace form with details such as address and phone. number so that in the event you develop symptoms, we can track people you have been in contact with.  If your details change at all please let us know immediately.

·      Where possible bring your own drink.  However, we will serve tea and coffee from the hatch.  Remember social distancing in queuing and sitting (2 metres)  Place used cups on the counter top.

·      It is NOT mandatory to wear a mask but if you feel safer to do so then please do.

·      Seats have been set out with a mixture of 1’s, 2’s and family group sizes.  Find a suitable seat and please use that same seat each week where possible.

·      Children will have separate work spaces in sibling groups with separate resources.

·      Families could we encourage you to talk to your children before hand and ask them to either sit with you as a family or at their designated table to do their activities. Parents can sit with their children for the activities should they chose to.  Unfortunately, we are not allowed to have out any toys or play areas.  We would ask that at the end of the service parents are responsible for keeping their children with them and not allowing them to run around the hall.

·      During the service: Only one person is allowed to sing normally (probably Nicky). Singing is not allowed unless it is quieter than a normal conversation so should you wish to hum along or sing under your breath, that will be fine.  We would still encourage you to share any scripture or share testimonies and words from God within our worship time.

·      Tithes and offering will be collected by an adult who wear a glove.  We will accept cash but where possible, we would encourage you to pay money directly into the Anchor Community Church account you can do this by BACS/standing order to account number: 83949745 sort code 40-42-18     Please use your name as the reference so we can identify it on the church account.

·      Communion: We will be using disposable plastic cups which will be handed to you by an adult wearing gloves.  Bread rolls will be placed in paper bags and handed to you.  If you have allergies to white bread please let Nicky know so that an alternative can be provided.

·      We will try to record the messages so that we can eventually put them online for others to enjoy.

·      Wash your hands or use hand gel before having any drinks at the end of the service.

·      Please leave via the fire exit door and ramp from the hall.

·      We can only have up to 30 people in hall so if we get increased numbers we may have to look at alternative ways of having our service.

 

We can’t wait to see you all again and be able to fellowship in the ‘flesh’. We are social beings by nature and this is going to be a challenging time for us all to not be able to hug and get too close but we thank you in advance for your understanding and look forward to seeing you on Sunday.     Ben and Nicky
