Our Children and Families Worker, Sam has been appointed to a new post as Mission and Ministry Adviser for Totnes Archdeaconry and so will leaving Trull at the end of August. Sam’s last official Sunday with us will be Sunday 22nd July and there will be an opportunity to say thank you and goodbye to Sam- look out for details in the pew sheets and in July’s magazine.
However, we will endeavour to keep as much running as possible next term until a new Children and Families Worker can be appointed.
These are our activities aimed just at children – from 2 1/2 to 11 years.
Our Sunday children’s groups are collectively called STOMP.
The children join with the rest of the church family for the beginning of our 9:30am service, before our children’s leaders bring them to the Trull Church Community Centre for their groups. Parents then collect the children from the TCCC at the end of the church service.
We have 4 groups within Stomp for different age groups, and in their groups the children learn stories from the Bible, think about God’s character and what he has done for us and talk about what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Each group does this in a different way suitable for the age of the children – with an emphasis on fun and enjoying our time together.
All our children’s leaders and helpers have current enhanced level DBS checks in place.

Launchpad is a ‘youth-club’ style group for children in Key Stage 2 (Years 3 – 6).
We run a programme of activities to provide variety each week – there might be crafts, organised games or challenges, or just ‘free-play’ (this includes table tennis, basketball, football, Wii etc).
We start with donuts and cookies, a short thought taken from a movie followed by whatever is planned for the session.
Launchpad runs every Wednesday in term-time, except the 1st Wednesday in the month (when it’s Worship through Play – see our Families page for details). Sessions run from 3:15 – 4:15pm and there is no charge.
The children don’t need an adult with them and, with permission, can leave Trull School and come to Launchpad unaccompanied. Children attending Trull Late Club can be brought over to Launchpad – contact Sam for details.
Places at Launchpad are limited for safety reasons and so if you would like a place for your child at Launchpad, please contact Sam before coming to a session.
For more information about any of these activities, please contact Sam Upham, Children and Families worker on 01823 330812 ext 4, 07450230219 or email [email protected]
