Clearing the way for children to come to church

School Path

Chandler’s Ford URC have quite literally cleared a path to enable children from the neighbouring infant school to walk to the church without having to go on the public path by the road! This greatly reduces the ‘form-filling’ for the school and makes accessing the church for visits very easy! Sue Scott, church secretary, has been building links with the school who held their carol service there, were invited to Mothering Sunday and have volunteers from the church going in to listen to children read. ‘We are a church without children on a Sunday morning, but ready to welcome children any day of the week! Our new minister is coming to us in September and both the church and the school hope this will take our working relationship even further.’
