On Friday mornings we have a group for parents and tots (grandparents, childminders, carers etc. also welcome) at the Cornerstone Church building. We want to provide somewhere that people can come with small children and have a cup of tea and some (adult) conversation while the children play. We are open from 10 - 11:30 am. It is a drop-in so you can come for some or for all of the session. The session is free, although some people like to make a small contribution for the tea & coffee. We have children's toys, some craft activities, some singing and a Bible story.

Our toddler group meets on Wednesday mornings at 9.45am. We have a reputation as one of the friendliest and most welcoming groups in St Albans. As a result we are very popular, and so for safety reasons we have a limit of 40 adults - we are often full by as early as 10am, so please do try to get here early to avoid disappointment. A variety of toys, books, and games are available to entertain the children. Each week there is at least one craft activity, and we keep a fenced off area for babies with age-appropriate toys. There is a charge of £2 per session, which includes tea, coffee, squash and biscuits. At around 11am we tidy the toys away and end with about 10 minutes singing of well known nursery rhymes and songs. Toddlers does not meet in school holidays, or the second half of the summer term.
