Mid Deeside is a family friendly church. When it comes to worship we expect children to behave like……. well……. children. We welcome you and your children of all ages to our church.
During term time we run three groups – Pebbles, Stepping Stones and Rock Solid - for children and young people ranging from infant through to S2. Please click on the menu on the left to read about what each group has to offer.
All our volunteers have been vetted by Disclosure Scotland and are highly committed to the work they are doing.
Whether you are a regular attender or just visiting, your children will be made very welcome in our groups. Equally, if your children feel more comfortable staying with you in church we welcome them to do so. There are some children’s books at the back of the church which your children are welcome to go and pick up at any time during services.
During school holiday times when the young people’s groups are not meeting, we provide a table at the front of the church with pens, crayons, paper, colouring in books, story books etc, for young children. Many of the children choose to sit together at the table during the service and our minister makes them most welcome. Some children prefer to take materials back to sit with their parents.
We know that it always takes a bit of time to work out “how things work”. Please do not hesitate to ask one of our welcome team “greeters” to help you and your children get settled in, show you were things are and explain how things usually happen.
