SJE: A Welcoming, Inclusive (and Child-Friendly) Church
In the last few months we have welcomed a number of families with young children to St. John’s. As a way of including these young ones, we have experimented with a small children’s area in the north-west corner of the church. The next time you come to church you will see that we are now experimenting with a new area in the body of the church. By reclaiming seating space in other areas we are able to offer this space without the loss of seating capacity.
As part of becoming a child and parent-friendly church we are also planning to provide audio of our worship services in both the foyer and the nursery so that the needs of children and parents are accommodated . All of this is part of our practice of hospitality and welcoming, welcoming others as Christ has welcomed us.
