Children in church


Every Monday morning during term time St. Andrew's church, Alwalton is full of the sound of happy children playing, singing and enjoying each other's friendship as well as God's.

Tiddlywinks is our Play and Praise group run by Fiona Schneider and Jo Ruff and is open to anyone with preschool children. Doors open at 9.30am and we end at 11.15am and you are welcome to come and go as you please.

What Goes on at Tiddlywinks?

We begin and end with free play. There are lots of toys and activities for the whole range of preschool children.

At 10.15 we have refreshments and then at 10.30am there is a short creative Bible story and a time of singing , playing musical instruments and enjoying fun action songs.

We often have craft activities or puzzles out and the building is always warm.

In the Summer we end the term by heading outside for our annual "Teddy Bears' Picnic".

Tiddlywinks is not a play group and your child remains your responsibility throughout the session.

What does it cost?

There is no charge for coming to Tiddlywinks, but we do ask that a donation of at least £1 be made if possible to help us to cover all our costs.

Car parking

Because Tiddlywinks is popular and Alwalton is a village, parking can sometimes get quite tight, please try to bear in mind our neighbours and if possible park in the village car park at the Colonel Dane Memorial Village Hall.
