Ark Teenies welcomes families with babies and toddlers on Tuesdays during term-time.

Sadly Ark Teenies isn’t able to run in person at the moment. The lockdown regulations technically allow support groups to run, but due to the high infection rate and the way the new COVID strain spreads more easily, we feel we would be putting families at risk by opening. We will keep reviewing this regularly and aim to re-open as soon as it’s safe to do so.

In the meantime, we’d like to invite you to an Ark Teenies ‘coffee and chat’ on Zoom. We can open a number of ‘breakout rooms’ so you can chat in smaller groups. If there are people you’d particularly like to chat to, you can let us know when you join or you can stay in the main meeting room. Join using the link below at 1.30pm on Tuesday. If you’d like help with using Zoom, please email us.

If you haven’t been in touch with us before, please introduce yourself beforehand using the enquiry form below. We’ll also then keep you up to date with what’s happening with the group and let you know if and when we can start taking new families for the in-person sessions. You can watch the video to get an idea of how the in-person sessions usually run and what we do to keep everyone safe.

Ark Teenies enquiry form

We’re only able to have a limited number of families registered for our in-person sessions. This is so that groups can be kept as consistent as possible during COVID-19. It also helps families to get to know and support one another. We’ll keep your enquiry on file and let you know as soon as we can start accepting new families again for the in-person sessions. Priority is usually given to families with at least one baby under 12 months, but if you feel you have other special circumstances, please let us know.

If you’re only interested in the Zoom sessions, you can let us know this on the form.

We will use your details in running the Ark group and to let you know about events at Clitheroe Community Church if you have selected this option. We will also keep your details for NHS Test and Trace purposes for 21 days. Please tell us if you don’t want us to do this. We never share your details with anyone else unless required to do so by law. More details, including your rights, are in our privacy notice.
