Children and Families
We seek to be a chapel that welcomes families, and hope to offer an inclusive community for all ages. Click here for full details of the current provision for families at Godalming Unitarians
On 2nd Sundays of the month (excluding August) the children join the adults for the first part of the service in the chapel, which includes a story – before leaving for their own structured activities in the hall – led by DBS checked volunteers.
On 4th Sundays of the month – during February, April, June, September and November there is an All Age Service in the chapel, suitable for all the family. These are sometimes followed by shared lunches.
On other 4th Sundays (except August and December) there is a story that children can enjoy, and families are welcome to sit in the gallery for the rest of the service, where colouring, books and toys are provided.
All Age Services
These services are for adults and children to worship together with stories, singing and something for everyone. After this service there is normally a shared “pot luck” lunch. All are welcome.
Children from the age of 7 upwards have the opportunity to take part in wider Unitarian Children and Youth events such as Unikids (based in the South East), Uniteenz (for teens) and Junior, Inter and Senior Weekends at The Nightingale Centre, Great Hucklow in Derbyshire. Information about the Unitarian Youth Programme can be found on the UK Unitarian website
