Families

MOPS IS NOW ON – EVERY OTHER FRIDAY – see below

From the day they are born children are loved and cherished members of God’s family, and we want them and all their families to feel at home in Liberton Kirk.

In Church

Children are very welcome at any of our services.   There is a welcome leaflet (look for the big “Hello!”) which explains where things are in the church which you might need.   During the 11am Sunday service there is a crèche in the halls for under-threes, and older children have their own programmes for part of the service, or once a month for the whole of the service.

MESSY CHURCH

For more information on Messy Church, a monthly event specially for young families (children 0 – P7), visit its web page.

FAMILIES WITH PRE-SCHOOLERS

We have a large selection of toys and a baby space. Drinks and snacks available for parents and toddlers. It costs £2 per family and there is no need to book – just turn up.
Please note that the Wednesday group is currently full and we are running a waiting list, to get your name on the list please contact Linda Wright. There are spaces available for Tuesday afternoon.

The fun doesn’t have to stop there, Why not come early and visit the cafe for lunch on Tuesdays or stay for some lunch on Wednesdays.   Lunch available from 12pm to 1.30pm. For more info and an idea of what’s on offer go to the Kirk Centre Cafés page.

Pram Praise

This is a short time of worship specially for the under-threes, although their carers are welcome too and seem to enjoy it!   There are action songs, a story, something to make and take home, prayers to join in, and shakers to make a noise in the last songs.   Don’t miss it!    Dates on noticeboards or flyers.   There is a break in the summer for the school holidays.

  • Monthly on Wednesday in the Small Hall, 11am to 11.20am
  • Monthly on Tuesday in the Small Hall, 3pm – 3.20pm                                                                                                                                                              
Nursery Sunday Club

For three-year-olds up to the point where they join Primary School, this is held in the Small Hall on Sunday mornings during the 11am service.   Children join the first part of the church service and parents can go to the halls with their children until they are happy to be left.

MOPS (Mothers of Pre Schoolers)

Toddlers is for toddlers – MOPS is for mums!  If YOU have a pre-schooler in YOUR family, come along to Liberton Kirk Centre on Friday 24th May at 9.30am and find out all about it!
