The Benefice of Swanwick and Pentrich
St Andrew's and St Matthew's


Early Birds

Early Birds meet on the third Sunday of every month at 9.45 am at St Andrew's Church.
This is a service especially for the very young (up to early primary) and their families. Some children come with their parents, others bring grandma yet another brings her godmother! We meet in the church every 3rd Sunday from 9.45 for half an hour only – just long enough for little people.

After a short welcome and introduction we read a story from the Lion First Bible (which St Andrew's gives as a christening gift), sing a short song – with actions of course, do an activity and end with a prayer and loud ‘Amen’!

Our gifts are shared between the church and ‘Smile Train’.To date we have supported 6 children’s operations to overcome severe cleft palates. The before and after photos are truly humbling.

We are a very friendly group and love to welcome newcomers.
