Mothers and Toddlers Group


11 years ago, the Mothers and Toddlers group, led by Lillian McTernaghan, started with just 6 people.

Today it is one of the most thriving and fruitful ministries within the Metropolitan Tabernacle; a truly genuine blessing to young mothers and their kids from around the local district of North Belfast and even further afield.

No fewer than 93 parents now attend this little haven with their children, many of whom do not claim to be Christians or even members of the Tabernacle. The Mothers and Toddlers has become a great little “outreach” for parents of children under school age, allowing them to meet and discuss their situations together, while the kids enjoy the beautiful crèche provided for them. They can play happily while the mothers enjoy great fellowship and receive spiritual guidance, if they so choose. The morning is always concluded with a wonderfully prepared mini-lunch, with the help of the girls in our restaurant.

Meeting every Thursday morning at 10.00am, the Mothers and Toddlers club runs from September to June of each year. If you are the parent of a young child, why not avail yourself of this excellent opportunity by allowing your child to meet other children of similar ages, while at the same time getting to know new friends yourself. Everyone is welcome no matter what background or religion you come from.
