Yate Church


Our creche is aimed at children up to 3 years of age.
We meet every Sunday during the 10:30am service, in the Rank Room on the first floor. If you are unsure where to find us just ask one of the stewards.
Our creche is staffed by volunteers from the regular congregation, many of whom have young children of their own. At least two creche workers supervise each session. We have a wide range of toys for the children to play with and the emphasis is on fun.
There is no charge for this facility and you do not need to book a place, just bring your child along on the morning. During communion services (usually the third Sunday in every month) we meet at the start of the service, for about 45 minutes. We then bring the children back to you or ask you to collect them, so that they can come to the communion rail with you and receive a blessing if you wish. On all other Sundays, including family services (usually the second Sunday in every month) we ask you to take your child in to the service with you for the first 15 minutes or so. The preacher will announce when the creche is due to start, and you may then bring your child upstairs for the remainder of the service.
We do ask that you stay within the main church building at all times while your child is in the creche, and that you notify us of any specific needs, disabilities or illnesses which your child has. You are welcome to come and visit your child at any point or stay with them to help settle them if necessary, although we hope you will feel able to return to the service.
We look forward to meeting you.

Yate Methodist Church is committed to the safeguarding and protection of all children, young people and vulnerable adults.
