Little Acorns is the baby and toddler group of Hathern Baptist Church that will we will be starting as a pilot scheme on 3rd March 2017 as a new service to the community of Hathern. We hope that parents, carers and theirf children will make new friends and feel welcome in our church community.

The church lounge will be open on Friday mornings, during term-time, from 9am to 11.15am. While the children enjoy informal play, exploring the toys and getting to know one another, parents and carers will have an opportunity to chat and share in their children’s activities. We are also hoping to run a craft table during this time with different painting, drawing and sticking activities.

Part way through the morning, there will be a break from informal play when the children will be given a snack and a drink, while the adults can enjoy coffee, tea and cake.

After the break, there will be a short Bible story and singing time. This will give parents and carers an opportunity to share the fun of singing nursery rhymes and action songs.

The cost will be £1 per family each week. There are changing facilities and nappy sacs, located in the disabled toilet.

We are looking forward to spending time with you and your children and hope you will also enjoy being here. Any ideas or suggestions will be welcome. If you would like more information, then contact Ruth at
