The SWAMP: Under 3’s Sunday Worship and Morning Praise at St. Ouen’s Parish Church

The SWAMP (Sunday Worship and Morning Praise)

Pre-School Groups at St. Ouen’s Parish Church (Under 3s)

The SWAMP (Sunday Worship and Morning Praise) is an area within the church which seeks to meet the needs of families with infant children. Until February half term the space was intended for children up to the age of 5. However, after careful playful consideration, it was decided, in collaboration with the appropriate parents, that children aged 3 and above would attend SOCKS.

Therefore, the SWAMP has evolved into a crèche area in which Bible story themed activities are run each week. Emma German, Rachael de la Haye and Jane Reed oversee these activities and we, as a church, must thank them for their loving commitment to this. Emily has made this area of children’s ministry her priority for the upcoming term however the development of this is dependent on additional volunteers being able to assist those who currently oversee the area on Sunday mornings.

Please pray that God guides Emily in approaching those who are called by God to help in this area and that Emily and Peter have a clear vision of God’s will for the development and growth of this important ministry to young families on Sunday mornings.
