Barton Evangelical Church

Children & Young People

The following is part of a letter sent to the Acorns parents.

"We are sad to let you know that Acorns Playgroup will close at the end of the 2018 summer term. The Church has thought long and hard before making this decision.

"We have had some issues with staffing and the number of children on our books for the coming year is very low. Changes that the government is making have all been taken into consideration before making this decision.

"It has been such a pleasure to spend time with you and them. This decision has not been taken lightly. Although Acorns is closing, could we share with some of the other activities that the Church does run for children. It would be great to see you and your children at some of them.

"Every Sunday morning from 10.30 at Baysgarth School we hold our Sunday morning service with a Sunday School and a crèche."

Other activities for children and young people are shown on this page.

"Thank you again for trusting us with your children. May God bless you and them. All the very best wishes and kind regards.
The Acorns Staff."
