The Itchen Valley’s Sunday morning groups for children are known as The Ark.  We meet during the morning service in various age groups to cater for children aged 2-14 years.  The children sing songs, pray creatively together, play games, hear a Bible story, do activities in their group and lots more!  We sail around the Valley but meet in Itchen Abbas and Avington Village Hall on the second Sunday of the month during term time, which is when our Parish Communion service is at St John’s, Itchen Abbas.
