There is plenty going on for all the children and young people.
There is plenty going on for Children and Young People at MDMC. Get in touch if you have any questions
MDMC we celebrate and enjoy all ages being part of God’s family. Sunday by Sunday we achieve this by:
On the third Sunday of each month we enjoy an “All-in” service where everyone stays together for the whole service. These services tend to be fast –paced, interactive and around an hour in length. Fun for everyone!
On the other Sunday mornings we enjoy praise and worship together as a whole church family for the first half hour of each service, then children leave for more age-appropriate worship and learning.
We also run groups for children and young people who want to spend more time thinking about God and their journeys with and towards Him. Although both of these groups are fun and may include games, crafts, films, food and quizzes, they are primarily discipleship groups where members are encouraged to chat honestly and openly about their beliefs and feelings and to pray for each other and the world – working out how to be salt and light in our community and daily lives.
Praise@4 is a family centred worship event that runs on the second Sunday every other month based around story, song and food! Please see the homepage for the next event. We clear the chairs out of the way so we have plenty of room to sing and dance as we worship God alongside our band. Our puppets often pay us a visit to sing a song or help tell our story that week and there’s games and activities to do. After about 45 minutes, we then go into the hall to share a hot meal together. No charge, donations towards the cost of food gratefully accepted. No unaccompanied children – this is something to do together!
Market Drayton Methodist Church Toddler Group welcomes anyone with a pre-school child. You do not have to live in Market Drayton!
We are an informal group who meet in the church hall every Thursday, in term time, between 9:45am – 11:15am.
There are a range of toys from babies to toddlers and an activity table with crafts or colouring to keep your little one amused while you have a chat and a drink. Tea, coffee, juice, toast, fruit & biscuits are served from arrival and are unlimited, so keep topping up your cup however many times you like, then after tidy up time, we have a few songs, before we leave.
First session is free as a taster, then £1.50 for 1 child, £1.70 for 2 children from same family, £2 for 3 children from same family.
