Bright Sparks is our parent/carer and toddler group that has been running for nearly 30 years.
A dedicated team of ladies from the church run two groups on a Thursday morning (9.30-10.45 & 11-12.15). Both groups consist of free play time with a variety of toys in the main hall, a baby area, and table top activities in the side classroom that vary each week – craft, puzzles, stories, playdough, painting etc. There are refreshments for both children and adults followed by storytime (some weeks) and a music time at the end of the session.
Bright Sparks is very popular with families from Wall Heath and the surrounding areas. In 2017 we moved from having one to two groups and since September 2018 we have had to set a limit of 30 children at each group to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all those attending. Since September 2018 we have had contact with over 100 different children. Each week we have contact with up to 60 children and their parents/grandparents/carers, providing a safe place for children to play whilst the adults are able to build friendships and find a listening ear when life with a toddler becomes challenging. We are able to pray for families and provide practical support when possible.
