Except for school holidays this group meets every Monday from 9:45 until 11:15am in the Lower Hall at Christchurch. About 70 children, parents, grandparents and carers attend each week.

Time for tea at Parents and ToddlersWe warmly welcome children from babies in arms to pre-school toddlers accompanied by their parents, mums or dads, grandparents or carers. There is a happy friendly atmosphere.

Singing at Parents and ToddlersWe have a good range of toys and equipment and a quieter area for the younger children to crawl on a large rug.

Healthy fruit snacks and water are served to the children, with tea and coffee for the adults.

Each morning concludes with 15 minutes of singing action songs and nursery rhymes, which the children love.

The cost is £1 for each family.

Contact the Church Office for more information.

Summer in the Park posterToddlers in the Park

Mondays, 10:30-11:30am,
24th July – 21st August

Each Monday over the summer we will meet in Riverside Gardens near the play area so that adults can chat and children can play together! We’ll be there 10:30-11:30am with picnic blankets and a few outdoor toys. Older siblings are very welcome. If it’s wet, we’ll meet in the Lower Hall at Christchurch instead.

Confirmation will be posted on our facebook group (Children and Families @ Christchurch Ilkley) so check on there if the weather isn’t clear.


Our regular Toddler group in the Lower Hall at Christchurch will start up again on Monday 11 September.



We are always being asked about our Playdough recipe - so here it is:

Playdough Recipe
· 1/2 cup salt
· 1 cup flour
· 1 tablespoon cream of tartar
· 1 tablespoon oil
· 1 cup water
· food colouring

Combine ingredients in a saucepan.
Heat gently, stirring all the time.
When the dough has a good consistency, take it off the heat and allow to cool.
Keep in a sealed container - no need to refrigerate.
