WELCOME to Little Fishes, the Christian pre-school group for babies, pre-school children and their parents and carers, at St Mary of Charity Parish Church. We meet each Thursday morning during term time between 10 am and 11.30 am.
Everyone is welcome to join us at Little Fishes.
When you arrive at Little Fishes each week we ask that you sign in. On your first visit we will ask you to complete a short registration form.
The morning follows a loose structure, including playing with toys, craft activity, a time for a drink and snack with a story and then sharing a song and prayer together.
We do not make any admission charge, but we do welcome donations towards our group. Your donations pay for materials for our craft activities and for the refreshments.
We really hope your time with us is fun and enjoyable as you get to meet new friends.
Little Fishes meets during school term time only and so there is no little fishes during half term, or between terms.

We have a Facebook Group so if you are on Facebook and would like to join please either search Little Fishes in Groups and ask to join or befriend Dennis Parrett or Rebecca Millington and we’ll invite you! We have kept it as a closed group and limit what can be posted but we use it to update people when we can. The activities are all listed on this page.
