Anchor Tots is a group for parents/carers and their babies and pre-school children. It is run by members of Anchor Community Church. We aim to provide a happy, friendly environment for children to play, and adults to chat and make new friends.
Anchor Tots meet during school term time (Currently one Friday afternoon a month) from 1pm – 2:30 pm, finishing just in time to pick up siblings from school.
Anchor Tots costs just 50p per session to cover costs. Story time, songs and healthy snacks are provided each session.

Anchor Explorers is for children aged 8 – 12 years old who are keen to explore the Bible and their faith within a small group.
Each session is free and consists of playing games, singing songs, studying the Bible and taking part in follow up crafts to support what they have learnt.
We believe the Bible to be God’s Word and true and so teach the children Bible stories as well as explore who God is and how He can make a difference in their lives.
Children are free to ask any questions and we will explore the answers to those questions further. The sessions are run by adult volunteers from Anchor Community Church, including Pastor Ben Davies.
We hope to start these sessions up again when the lockdown for the current pandemic has eased. Check our Facebook page for the latest info.
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 once a month from 10am until 12.30pm on the first Saturday of each month. Being an informal style of church, it suits families 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 service involving a story, prayer, songs, 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.
