With three young children, I’ve been to a few toddler groups in my time. Wonderful as they were, none of them was in quite as spectacular a setting as York Minster. Exciting news then that York Minster will be welcoming parents and carers of babies and toddlers to its brand new Minster Mice sessions.
Cushions and rugs will be spread out around the altar, creating a warm and supportive environment. The first half of the session will be a mixture of play time, bible stories, interactive prayers and tots’ tours of the Monster, while the second half is for coffee and chatting with others in a similar situation. The aim is to help tackle the loneliness and stress that parents and carers often experience. It’s a lovely idea, and we wish them every success.
Minster Mice sessions will take place on the following dates, from 10am until 11.30am.
• 21 September
• 5 October
• 19 October

• 23 November
• 7 December
