A monthly group for new mums with babies up to 12 months old. We meet together to build friendships and encourage one another. The mornings include coffee and chat, a fun activity, hearing from experienced mums and, most importantly, learning what the Bible has to say about the struggles new mums face.

Stepping Stones Playgroup
A brand new toddler group for pre-schoolers and parents, meeting 9:45-11:00am, at Merton Park Baptist (SW20 8TE) Thursdays in term time. A small group hosted by families from Dundonald Church, aiming to welcome you to an oasis in your week, toys and free play for the 0-3s, coffee, cake and chat for the grown-ups. Everyone gets together for a fun time of singing, actions and a Bible story before heading home. As places are limited, guests need to pre-book a free trial and/or apply to be on the waiting list to join if the group is currently full.
Junior Jivers is a structured and interactive music session (involving singing, dance, instruments and stories) for pre-schoolers and their carers. Parents and carers join in with their children, providing a great opportunity to enjoy singing and dancing together. No previous musical experience is required and everyone is welcome!
It’s a great opportunity to get to know other families in the community. Each term there is a different theme filled with new and familiar songs, fun activities and Christian teaching. After half an hour of singing we have cake and refreshments, a chance for children to play and for adults to catch up.
We meet during term times on Tuesday or Friday mornings from 10am. Cost is £50 per family per school term. Please register your interest by contacting Julie Morrow (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Jolt is for children in school years 4-6. It runs from 6.30-8pm every other Friday during term time. Booking is essential. At Jolt, we have lots of fun and adventure as we learn about Jesus from the Bible, play games and enjoy exciting activities.
We meet every other Friday from 7-9pm for an evening with mates that’s both frantic and chilled. We start with activities including Table Tennis and a Tuck Shop. We’ll play a big game together before having a chance to think about the claims of the Christian faith, and think about how those claims might affect our lives. After this we split into two streams for those of us who want to be more active or more creative. In the past we’ve made edgy crafts, filled the entire church baptism pool full of jelly, bounced around on giant inflatables, watched films, played laser tag, eaten insects and been to play 5-a-side football and adventure golf!
Because our young people are growing in their independence our socials aim to treat them as adults without losing the fun! We meet from 8-10pm every other Friday in a variety of locations. In the past these have included homes, ice-cream parlours, cinemas, crazy golf and restaurants. Generally though, we’ll play some games, have something to eat, chill, chat and look at the Bible together. These are the perfect evenings to come along to and find out what we’re all about.
