actively recognise the importance of bringing Jesus into the lives of
the children in our parish and surrounding areas. We have
several regular activities for our children and young families.
Church is aimed at pre-school, infants and juniors and is a
fun event designed for parents and children to take
part in together. The Messy
Church program is a fast growing
ministry, which originated in the UK, that engages and builds
relationships with thousands of
people outside the usual church context.
hold our Messy Church sessions in Potterne Village Hall, every two
months on a Friday, straight after school. We start off with
several craft activities, followed by a short informal Bible story and
song, then finish with a cooked meal.

teams of volunteers from our parish present a programme of themed and
dramatised Bible stories to the children at our local primary school.
The school (Five Lanes Primary School) is split over two
with key stage 1 in Potterne and key stage 2 in Worton. The
teams go into both school sites on a Monday morning to present their
Bible story during school assembly.
teams use drama, mime, props, costume -
even the children and staff themselves - to present Bible stories in
ways that are lively, engaging, informative ... and great fun for
everyone involved! If you would like to become involved,
please contact Keith Thorman (see the Church
