Poppin is our weekly group for parents and carers with their babies and toddlers. Everyone is welcome, whether or not they attend Above Bar Church or any other church.

Poppin is not currently running. To receive up to date information about the when Poppin restarts, please sign up to our mailing list here.

Fun for your child

There are games and toys for babies and toddlers, and coffee and a chance to catch up and share news for the parents, who come from all over the city. A team of adult helpers from Above Bar Church makes Poppin a safe and positive environment for children to play in, and provides support for parents and carers.

As well as lots of toys to play with, there is always an activity for the children, ranging from painting or playdoh to making musical instruments, firework pictures or sand play, depending on the time of year. We provide a snack for the children and the session finishes with singing. We celebrate Christmas, Easter and Harvest at Poppin and on the last session of every half term there will be a chance to come and hear a bible story read before singing time and our craft for that week will be linked to our story.

Encouraging for you

Many parents find mutual emotional, practical and spiritual support at Poppin. It is a great place to get to know other parents. We also run parenting courses from time to time so we can all learn together.
