Including children in the services

At Granton we have members of our Church of all different ages, and we believe in valuing everyone. We've been thinking about how we include our children more in the services, so that rather than spending most of our Sunday separated, children and adults have the chance to worship together as one family. To do this for the next few weeks, rather than leaving the service, the children will have a space at the back of the church they can go to where there will be activities and toys for them. I...

The Bible reading will now happen before the Kids' Talk, so that the young people  can hear what the grown ups are going to be hearing about in the sermon.

Family Film Nights: monthly on Fridays in darker months

During the winter months, when the nights are darker, we run monthly family film nights. These take place in the main church, and films are shown on the big screen. Film Nights are open to all, but children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult over 18. We really encourage families to come out to this together - a family trip to the movies could cost over £20 so this free event is a great way of getting a family night out on a budget, and meeting other families.   We wan...
