Music Makers is Evesham Baptist Church’s parent and toddler group, which meets on Wednesday and Friday mornings during term time. In the space of 90 minutes we find time for free play, craft, refreshments, stories and music. Our group aims to provide a safe environment for children and carers alike to share and interact and most of all a time for songs, laughter and lots of fun!
From time to time we hold other special events for Music Makers families. One of these events is ‘Who let the Dads out?’, where we hold one of our Music Makers sessions on a Saturday morning especially for dads to bring their little ones along to and see what goes on during the week, while they are hard at work! Bacon baps, toast and coffee, coupled with time and space with their child(ren), seems to be a winning combination.
During the pandemic we have obviously not been able to meet at the church, so we have been sending out links to video sessions. These are fairly short (about fifteen minutes or so) but include the songs, story-time and prayer that the children have become used to. There is a short extract for you to see here:
Update: September 2021: The Music Makers Team has met several times since our last communication in July to discuss new ideas and how we can safely and practically resume sessions this Autumn.
Some of the team, and possibly you too, are ‘clinically vulnerable’ so it is imperative that we are all confident when returning to Music Makers. Having children in the local schools ourselves, we are aware that Covid-19 is currently prevalent in the Evesham area, causing some families to self-isolate. For this reason, we feel unable to fix a date to restart, although it will certainly not be before the half-term, which is the last week in October.
We know that many of you will share our disappointment at this news. The decision was not taken lightly, but when Music Makers does start up again, we want it to be done well and with the confidence of all involved.
Please continue to monitor the WhatsApp group and we will also keep this page updated as promptly as we can.
We will miss not seeing you but pray that our loving Father will keep you and your loved ones safe this Autumn.
Kind regards, The Music Makers team
