Little Fishes Play Café
Due to government advice on social isolation, we regret that the Little Fishes Play Café is closed until further notice.
Meets weekly during school term time in Church on Sundays at 10:30 – we welcome all children who come to Sunday Morning Worship with their families and if you’re visiting we’d be especially happy to see you. There is a Children's area at the front of Church to enable families with young children to feel more relaxed whilst they are in Church. After sharing the first part of the service with the whole congregation we leave to have our own sessions.
The third Sunday in the month is normally an All Age Worship and so we remain with the rest of the congregation then, meeting together with some of our own activities at the front of the church. We do not run during the school holidays, nor on the second Sunday in the month when there is Craft @ 4 in the afternoon, however we will have a few activities on hand in the front of the church.

Annual Report (February 2020)
Jesus Crew still runs on 1st, 4th and sometimes 5th Sundays during term time. We have a small team of volunteers but just about manage to cover our dates. We are now using ‘ROOTS’ material and using the lectionary. This means that families can carry on their discussions at home. We now need to ensure that under 5s who come through to Jesus Crew are accompanied by an adult as there are only two leaders and often it can become difficult to manage very young children and keep the older children engaged.
Parent & Toddler Group
The group meets in the Church every Thursday morning during the school term and welcomes all pre-school children and their carers.
We are very sorry to tell you that the Toddler Group will not be meeting on Thursday mornings until the Coronavirus pandemic is under control. We will miss you all and look forward to re-opening when it is safe to do so and will let you know via this page when we are able to open again.
Contact: Jennifer Rodhouse (0118 978 5630)
The session runs from 9:30 to 10:45 am and can accommodate a maximum of 36 children.
The morning consists of a period of free play with a wide variety of toys and crafts, followed by a drink and a snack of fruit and a biscuit. Then follows a music session with percussion instruments, songs and action rhymes.
The children have fun while their carers socialise and have the opportunity to make new friends.

Annual Report (February 2020)
Wokingham Methodist Church Parent and Toddler Group welcomes babies and toddlers and their carers for a session of play, mid-morning snack and singing on Thursday mornings in term time.
The group is thriving and we have over 30 toddlers plus their carers every week. Sometimes we have to shut the doors and turn people away due to lack of space.
At Christmas, we held 2 parties to accommodate everyone and David Morgan donned his red suit and boots again to give out the presents!
As always, the smooth running of the Toddler Group is due to the commitment of the numerous volunteers in the team and a big thank you is due to them all. I would also add a word of thanks to Will who helps with the setting up and putting away.
We made a donation of £200 to one of our toddlers whose mother is receiving treatment for cancer.
