North Liverpool

The North Liverpool Branch is run by local volunteers creating a network to offer support, information and friendship to all parents and parents-to-be.

Welcome to NCT North Liverpool

We are run by local volunteers and welcome parents and parents-to-be in South Sefton and the surrounding areas; you don't have to be an NCT member to join in any of our events and activities.

For more information on the branch please visit our Facebook page. This is a public facebook page so you do not have to join facebook in order to view the details.

Little Stars Playgroup: Bumps, Babies and Toddlers

Our volunteers run a weekly playgroup on Mondays at 10-11.30am at St Nicholas Church Hall, Harlech Road, Crosby, L23. This is currently running all year round except bank holidays. This is open to all parents, grandparents and carers with children from birth to pre-school age. There is a small charge (£2, 50p 2nd child) but it includes a snack and craft activity for the children plus a hot drink for the adults. There is no charge for babies under 6 months or if parents-to-be wish to join us for a cuppa and a chat. We encourage all attending to help out when possible and invite anyone interested to get involved with helping to run the group.

Nearly New Sale

We hold one of the largest and most successful Nearly New Sales twice a year in October and March at Old Christ Church, Waterloo. There are 100 sellers with good quality nearly new childrens clothes, toys, books and all baby essentials; everything is organised into categories to help you find everything your growing family needs under one roof for a bargain price. For information on the latest sale or how to sell at future sales go to the NNS Facebook page. NCT Member get early access.

Registration for sells for the 7th October 2017 sale is now CLOSED. Regsitration for the following sale in March 2018 will open in January so check back here or on Facebook at that time.The sellers information pack can be found in the Related Documents on this page and the Nearly New Sale Info page which also has a labelling guide.

Other events

Check our Facebook events page for the latest events run by the branch. These currently include:

'Cinebabes'; 1-2 shows per month at 10.30am on Fridays at the Crosby Plaza Cinema. These are movies aimed at parents but that you can take pre-mobile babies along to. The volume will be slightly quieter, the lights on a little bit and nobody will mind if your baby cries.

Tea, coffee, cake meet up at Write Blend, South Road, Waterloo hosted by Cheryl (membership coordinator) weekly on Fridays at 10.40. There is a reserved table and discount offered to the group. It's upstairs but has lift access. It is breastfeeding friendly and will support anyone worried about feeding in public.

We have ad hoc soft play meet ups or invitations to branch team members houses for a drink and a chat.

We organise other special events throughout the year such a Christmas party with a visit from Santa and an Easter egg hunt. There are also opportunities to get together with parents without the children such as parents' social evenings. Details of these are posted on our Facebook events page as they are scheduled as well as being listed with the Hoop App.

We email everyone on our branch email list a monthly 'What's on' which lists the activities for that month. If you would like to be added to the branch list please email and request to be added. We do not share this list with any other part of the NCT or third parties. You can be removed by request at any time.

Antenatal Courses

For up to date details of available NCT Essential Antenatal Courses in North Liverpool go to the Courses for this branch page.

If none are showing for your due date they may already be fully booked; enquiries can advise about this if you would like to go on a waiting list. Currently these are run at the same venue as our playgroup, St Nicholas' Church Hall.

A representative of the branch will try to arrange to visit whilst members are on the course to introduce themselves and tell you about the branch. Hopefully this will make parents-to-be more relaxed and excited about attending branch events for the first time.

Should you decide to attend an antenatal course run by one of our neighbouring branches please email to ensure you are included in our members email and newsletter lists.


If you are interested in getting involved with helping to run any of our branch activities, would like to attend our branch meetings or would like to join the branch team please email the branch on
