Weekend Welcome @ Torrance Parish Church

Torrance Parish Church has started something new for 2024 and we’d love for you to be a part of it!

We’ve already had three ‘Weekend Welcomes’ in 2024 and they have been a great success!

Our next weekend welcome

is 10th May

(signing up in advance helps us plan for catering – if your able please fill our the form linked above or get in touch with the office)

Starting at the end of the school there are some games and crafts and other activities for parents and primary aged children to engage with together and for others to join us as we go. We’ll then share in a light and delicious dinner. Woven into this will be a chance to explore a passage from the Bible in a meaningful and engaging way.

Here is the running order that we are planning for this month (it’s slightly updated from January)

  • 3-3:15pm – Snack and Welcome (in cafe area)
  • 3:15-3:45pm – Games led by team for young people (parents can join – or chill out!)
  • 3:45-4:20pm – All age table activities (craft, board games, Lego etc….)
  • 4:20- 4:25pm– Tidy up and set table for Dinner.
  • 4:25-4:45pm – Family game, songs and Bible time
  • 4:45-5:15pm – Meal and chat round the table
  • 5:15-5:30pm – Closing words and finish.

While the activities will initially be aimed at primary aged families we’d love for others to join us too – perhaps nearer to meal time. You’re welcome to stick around after and muck in with the clear up.

Weekend Welcome is a free event. Should you wish to contribute towards the cost of the food though you are welcome to do so.

Our very first event was on Friday 19th of January and was a great success with just over 30 folks taking part and gathering round.


We’d love to hear from you!
