Children and families work is very important to the Ripon and Lower Dales Methodist Circuit. This page provides information about and links to what is happening with this work in the Circuit as well as resources for families to use to help them worship during the current lockdown.

J.A.M. — Jesus and Me is the ecumenical 'messy style' worship that our circuit helps to run in both North Stainley and West Tanfield primary schools. We have also recently added J.A.M. Extra sessions that are open to all the family. Look out for forthcoming events that will be advertised here. Click on the pdf on this page to access the latest edition of J.A.M. at Home 'Breakfast on the beach' which provides you with ideas that you can do at home whilst we are not able to meet together.

Messy Church — Check out this link to the Messy Church Website which gives access to loads of resources for children and families including Messy Church at Home which provides a weekly Messy Church at Home session giving you everything you need to have your very own Messy Church together in your own home.
