Noisy Mass

Published by JJ Jung on Thu, 6 Feb 2020 11:12

A short, lively and interactive service, yummy breakfast and STAY & PLAY! Come to our child-friendly space with lots of toys and fun to be shared. It's a great opportunity for parents to chat over tea and coffee, while little ones are having fun with their friends. And it's FREE! Hope to see you there 

What is it? 

At present we hold a Children’s Mass and breakfast on the third Sunday of every month. This is so popular that it’s being expanded and run more frequently. We’re hoping to reach more families in the area and build community. The new format (Noisy Mass with Stay and Play) will take place on the second and fourth Sundays of the Month and run from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. Please note that all existing children’s work at the 10.30am Mass (Children’s Church, Young Church, and Church Squad) remains in place. 

What will it be like? 

Fun for kids and parents too! We begin with a short 30-minute, interactive Mass, with songs and actions (baby and toddler friendly!) After that, toys and soft play equipment will be brought out, as well as refreshments and breakfast, for the ‘stay and play’. It will be a space where children can safely play whilst parents chat and support each other. 

When does it start? 

The official launch date for the Noisy Mass is the 9th February. From then on it will run on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the Month

What about children with special needs?

We are aiming to make the Noisy Mass a safe and welcoming place for children who have disabilities. This includes offering visual stories about the service on our web site, noise cancelling headphones and a sensory area as part of the ‘stay and play’.  

Who do I speak to for more information?
