We're not currently able to run Little Loves as our weekly numbers are too big, and the logistics of trying to manage safe, smaller groupings, too complex. So, we're doing two things: firstly, because the Love's Farm House Cafe (LFH) can't be hosted in the foyer on a Tuesday morning (as before) we've relocated it to the Little Loves hall slot on a Thursday morning and hosting it for LFH; that way we can hold the timetable space for when we can reintroduce Little Loves whilst making it possible for the community cafe to run at a Covid-safe capacity of 30 with social distancing, hand and respiratory safety measures in place. Secondly, our Little Loves team is thinking hard about what and how we might relaunch as soon as we safely can. For regular updates go to the Little Loves Facebook page
Every Thursday morning during term time, our parent/carer and toddler group Little Loves runs. Little Loves is hosted by the Breakfast Church team plus a few friends and meets at Love’s Farm community centre between 9.30am -11.00am. The morning is a mix of free play inside and outdoors (weather permitting), crafts and stories with snacks for the children and coffee and tea for grownups. You are invited to make £1 donation to attend – more if you can or nothing at all if you really can’t!
We understand that being a parent can be a tough job so we aim to make the group one that will leave you feeling affirmed and the children happy.
Each session closes with a short prayer of blessing.
We understand that very occasionally a parent is unable to leave the home because their child is sick or has some other special need. In such cases we offer a ‘Little Loves @ Home’ service in which a Little Loves team member will make a visit, bring some age appropriate toys, and stay for a chat and a treat for ‘elevensies’.
