A Welcoming, Safe Space For Young Children In Church

We have created a welcoming and safe space for our youngest to be with us in church and also be able to move around. The gated pew area has a carpeted floor. You are welcome to bring the soft quiet toys that your child enjoys. The area is in the back of the church where many of you now sit with your babies and toddlers. Nursery care is available during the service, but our youngest are also welcome in the church at all times.
