Barton Evangelical Church

Children & Young People

Acorns Playgroup is held in the church on Monday and Thursday mornings, during school term, from 9.30 am to 11.30 am.

Acorns is registered with the Local Authority (LA) and has access to support from the Early Years Team.

We have a good ratio of staff to children, so that Acorns is run with a family atmosphere. We are a Church based Playgroup; therefore, at snack time and at the end of the session, we say prayers with the children. We also include Bible stories when we plan activities and stories for the term.

Prior application is needed and places are given as vacancies arise. There is a charge of 2.50 per session.

Application forms are available from the staff; please call during one of our session times to collect a form or email

For more information email or phone (01652) 635506 .
