It does exactly what it says on the tin! 

Each first and third Sunday in the month, at 4:00pm in the afternoon, we open up The Link at St Bartholomew's Church (that's the church hall) to our children and parents.  We gather for a great time of play and activity, family worship, and a lovely children's tea-party style buffet. 

For many families this is firm fixture in their diary, and a way of belonging to the church community.  It's more than just another activity to attend - Families@4 is a church congregation in it's own right.  It's very busy and very popular!  This is the place to make friends and join the community of other local families.

Each month there is a theme taken from a Bible story - anything from Noah to the Good Samaritan.  In St Bartholomew's church we have a super audio-visual system so we can use the latest multimedia to tell the story and help our children learn.

We usually finish around 5:30pm with tired, happy and well fed children smiley
