PATCH (Parent And Toddler CHurch) Praise is a worship service for babies, toddlers and their grown-ups. Held in the creche room, on the second Sunday of every month, the creche children and their grown-ups are involved, as well as our youngest Kidzone group.
PATCH Praise is informal, open to everyone with young children, and geared for families being involved in the activities together. It lasts for about twenty minutes and is followed by tea/coffee/juice and cake/snack, although some adults may want to go through to the main service at that point. Everyone in PATCH goes through for the last 15 minutes or so of the main service so, for example, if there is a baptism, everyone in PATCH will be there in plenty of time.
PATCH Praise worship time is based around a theme, and we sing songs, have fun, hear what it says in the Bible and usually make a craft to take home.
UPDATE: During lock-down, PATCH Praise is being broadcast weekly via our youtube channel Claremont Kids https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7rQB7uESqwTdxcAJsLlqEw and our PATCH Praise facebook page https://www.facebook.com/PatchClaremont The activities and the teaching on these videos are also suitable for older children.
