Sheila Hopkins, our Parish Family Worker
Sheila is responsible for developing our work with children and families in Milford and Everton. At All Saints’ Milford we have monthly Church4All services where all stay to worship and to learn together. On other Sundays, after starting together, children have their own activity sessions in the hall during the service. At St Mary’s Everton monthly Family Teas & Family Service are especially geared up to welcome families.
Twinklers – every Tuesday: 9:00-11.15am in All Saints’ Church Hall.
Everton Toddler Group – every Wednesday: 9:30-11.30am in St. Mary’s Church Hall.
Friday Fun– a weekly games session for Y 3-6 children at St Mary’s Church Hall 4.30-5.30 pm. (term-time only)
We have close links with our local primary school, at which Sheila and Dominic take regular assemblies and are involved in other activities. The Prayer Space in January has led to a weekly Prayer Stop. Craig, our Youth Minister, is also involved in working with Y 5/6 . Members of our congregation are on the governing body and many others actively support various school events and activities. Some meet regularly to pray for the School. We welcome the school into All Saints’ Church each term for various services. Our Bell Ringers are exploring links with Years 5 / 6. The local Pre-School also visits All Saints.
Milford United Charities is a combination of a small number of ancient bequests (some dating back several centuries) administered by local trustees. It aims to use its small reserve of funds for the relief of particular situations of financial need within the Parish and to encourage young people in their efforts to contribute to the life of the community. Any request for information or assistance should be made in the first instance to Mr Christopher Beeton (tel 644609) or to the Vicar.
