Organisations  ALL MEETINGS CANCELLED MEANTIME due to COVID-19

Sunday School meets weekly in term time and spends the first fifteen minutes in church with the minister and congregation.

We then carry on with a bible reading and story accompanied with choruses and finish with craft work pertaining to the story.

 

Four times a year the children participate in the worship, at Harvest, Christmas with a Nativity Play, Easter and Prizegiving Sunday.  Teh congregation always look forward to their contribution.  

 

We have an outing t at Christmas and an event at the end of the summer term, which could be visit to bowling, a BBQ lunch or similar.

 

The children particpate in various fund raising activities and help with the Sunday School garden.

We dont see them as the 'church of tomorrow'! They are much more valued as part of our church family today.

FAB Little Fishes was set up in 2016 to provide a session for the young children and parents at Nairn Old Parish Church to meet and get to know each other. From small numbers it has grown as we also warmly welcome little ones from the wider Nairn community.

 

We are a Church based group and our welcome extends to everyone from any or no religious background and from any ethnic group. 

We welcome parents, grandparents and family carers.

 

Who’s welcome – We welcome all babies and children up to pre-school age, and Pregnant Mum’s are very welcome too.

 

The sessions – We meet every Wednesday morning 10am to 11.30am in the Parish Church hall.  Toys are available for free play with your child and there will be occasional craft activities for the older toddlers.

 

 

Snack time is an important time for the children at FAB Little Fishes when they all sit together to eat and drink, but please can you bring your own child’s snack with you. 

At the end of the session we tidy up the toys together and then usually finish with a song or a story.

 

 

During the year we have special sessions such as summer teddy bear picnics, Christmas and Easter sessions linked with Church and a Christmas Party.

 

But the Mum’s are not forgotten! There are 2 nights out during the year which is a chance for a hot meal in peace and uninterrupted conversation!

 

FAB Little Fishes aims to

v  Provide a safe and happy environment;

v  Be a welcoming place to make friends and feel supported;

v  Offer friendship;

v  Offer Christian love and support.

Choir 


The Choir practise every Thursday evening at 7.30pm during term time.

There are no practices during the summer school holidays.

The Choir are always hoping to recruit new members. We lead the Congregation in Hymn singing and sing a short Introit and an Anthem most Sundays. Even if you cannot read music, we would give lots of encouragement and help to anyone willing to join us, as we are all very keen that the choir is able to continue as a vital element in our worship.
