‘Child-friendly’ church award

Have your say

A SOUTH Yorkshire church is to receive an award for being child-friendly.

St Mary’s, at Wombwell, in Barnsley, is being presented with the accolade from the Child Friendly Church Award Scheme at its service on Sunday.

The awards are given to churches which ‘welcome and integrate children and their families into the worshipping life of their church’.

Rev Nigel Elliott said: “We are delighted to receive this and hope it will encourage more families to join us.”
