Children and Young People

Ducklings

Ducklings is the name of our pre-school playgroup that takes place every Tuesday during term-time between 10 and 11:45am. Toddlers and their parents/carers are welcome to come and play - there are plenty of toys to go round. We usually include a story, a craft session and some songs - so come along and have some fun.

Messy Church

Messy Church starts again in the new year on Friday the 3rd January at 3:30pm and will continue on the first Friday of each month.

The theme for January is 'The visit of the Wisemen'.

All children and young people will be made most welcome (The parents usually enjoy it too).

Messy Church Nativity Sheep Trail and Celebration

Messy Church Nativity Sheep Trail - This is taking place throughout Holmfirth now. We have chosen the local Kirklees "Home Start" Charity as beneficiaries from this event. 

Home-Start is a Kirklees Charity which supports parents in giving children a happy and secure childhood. They recruit and train volunteers (Usually parents themselves) to visit families in their homes offering informal, friendly and confidential support. 

Messy Nativity Sheep Trail

Ten local Primary Schools have been contacted, with a hope that many families will follow the trail and then come to our special Messy Nativity Celebration on Saturday 21st December at 3pm. 

The celebration, which will begin with refreshments, will be open to everyone, so we hope you'll come too!

This is a real opportunity for outreach, but it has involved the designing and printing of many Posters and Trail leaflets. If you can help at all with the cost, Michael or the Messy Church Team will be pleased to receive donations. Thank you.

Messy Nativity Sheep Trail:

We now urgently need the last of the sheep, as they have to be ‘delivered’ to the shops on the Sheep Trail this week.

Ten local Primary Schools have been contacted, with the hope that many families will follow the trail and then come to our special Messy Nativity Celebration on Sat 21st Dec at 3pm.

Messey Church Nativity Sheep Trail

Messy Church Nativity Sheep Trail - This will take place throughout Holmfirth during Advent. We have chosen the local Kirklees "Home Start" Charity as beneficiaries from this event. 

If anyone feels able to help with the cost of advertising please give donations to Michael Tolson or the Messey Church Team. 

Weekend Report for November 24/25 2012

Last weekend focussed on the teenagers at Holmfirth Methodist Church. On Saturday members of the Sunday night Youth Club and their leaders organised a magnificent three course meal for 65 members of the Church and friends. Together with a raffle and a hilarious auction of items generously donated by local businesses the evening raised over £1200 for three chosen charities – The Forget me not Children’s Hospice, The Teenage Cancer Trust and Christian Aid.

Messy Church

Holmfirth Messy Church meets on the first Friday of every month, 3.30pm to 5.15pm. It's for children of all ages with their parent/carer. We begin with refreshments, then have a story time followed by various crafts and activities all based on the theme of the day. We end by gathering together in church, sometimes with  the children acting out the story, but always finishing with a very short child friendly 'worship experience'.
