In Tranent Parish Church
There is a service every Sunday morning at 11:00am in the church (except on Remembrance Sunday when it is 11:30am, the service is preceded by a public service at the war memmorial at around 10:45am - 11:20am).
Children usually stay in church for the first half of Sunday services and are then invited to go upstairs for 'J Club' - which offers age-appropriate activities linked to that day's Bible reading. If young children find it hard to settle, they can sit in the gathering area where the adult with them can still see and hear the service - the children are provided with activities to keep them occupied. A creche is also available.
After every Sunday service tea/coffee and biscuits are served in the gathering area. This is a good opportunity to socialise and get to know each other.
The second Sunday of each month is an all-age worship in the church.
At TPC we have a desire to make worship accessible for everyone. As part of this vision, we hold all-age services on the second Sunday of every month. The minister uses BSL or Sign Supported English throughout so that Deaf people or those who rely on sign language can feel included. The only months we don't hold these services are July and August (children and helpers are mostly away) and November (because of Remembrance Sunday).
The all-age services are at our usual time of 11am and last an hour but because they are very interactive and people are free to move or go into the foyer where they can still hear/see, an hour doesn't seem to be too long for anyone. This means that children or adults with learning disabilities can stay in church for the whole time, hopefully without getting bored!
Why not come along and experience worship that may be a bit different to what you've been used to but is great fun for everyone? All are welcome!
