You are welcome to use the crèche area, outside the auditorium, at any time during the morning service. This area has a screen and sound which allows those supervising their own children to still hear and participate in the service.
During the School Summer holidays the 11am Sunday service will be an All Age Service. The service will contain all age elements, including a talk and activities for the children. There will also be a shorter time of teaching (15 minutes).
We have groups for children from 3 to 11years which meet during the morning service. We worship with the whole church family for the first 20 minutes, then meet in age-specific groups to have fun and learn about God together through Bible stories, games and activities.
With the current restrictions on numbers attending church, children from 3 to 11 years are meeting all together and using the outside area as well when weather permits.
Sessions on Tuesday 10am - 11.15am and Thursday 10am - 11.15am
Unfortunately, due to lack of helpers to run the sessions, Tuesday afternoon toddlers will not be running at present, but we're hoping this is only a temporary set back and it can restart very soon.
We are delighted to welcome under 5's and their parent/carer back to the DBC Toddler groups! You will now need to book a place before you come along to toddlers. Spaces are now 20 adults per session (under 5s don't count towards the total number), so only one parent/carer should book a place with their children, at one session per week, to give as many people an opportunity to attend. Please book 1 ticket per adult, under 5s do not need a ticket.
How do I book? It will be a week by week booking system; going live on each Friday at 6pm before the sessions on a Tuesday & Thursday. Please book your place at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/dumfries-baptist-church-33637136191
At the start of each session, or if you are new to Toddlers, please could you complete the Toddlers Registration Form and either email it back or bring along when you attend.
Who are we? We are a Church based group, the toddlers being just one of the many meetings that take place in the church.
Why hold these meetings? Good question! The main reason is that we might share with you more than just our friendship and our facilities. We are a group of Christians who have found the answer to all our needs in Christ. We pray that you might know him too.
There will be hot drinks and biscuits for the adults, so please feel free to bring along any snacks/drinks for your child.
Sessions are £2 per family which is used towards the running costs of the group.
Connect with the Toddlers Facebook page for regular updates.

We encourage everyone who comes to our church to join one of the many small groups which meet regularly in homes around the town.
The groups meet on a variety of evenings or some during the day. The small groups aim to pastorally care for one another, getting to know each other as they spend time together so that no-one feels ‘lost in the crowd’ of a large congregation.
The groups also pray for and with one another, to worship together, to actively explore biblical teaching together, and to find creative ways to share their faith with others. For more information, and to find a group near you, please contact the church office.
