What is Shrimps?

Shrimps is our popular Parents and Toddler Group. Staffed by volunteers from Christ Church, Shrimps welcomes parents, grandparents, guardians and their little ones.  We cater for all pre-school children.

As a church-based group, we operate with a Christian ethos and Christian values, and as such our sessions include Christian songs and activities. However, you do not need to be a Christian to attend – we warmly welcome carers and children of all faiths or of no faith at all.

We hope that you enjoy Shrimps and make lots of new friends. We look forward to meeting you!
