Welcome

Welcome

As we slowly emerge from lock-down the challenge we face is knowing how and when to re-open the church premises and learn how to be church in a new way.

We are embarking on a period of consultation where we will be seeking your feedback to help shape and refine a proposal that has been developed by the leadership team.

All our normal activities listed below are suspended until further notice to slow the spread of COVID-19 in accordance with government instruction

Sunday Mornings - 10:30am

We meet for morning worship at 10:30am with an all-age, family-friendly, service. We begin with worship, prayer and a short talk before the children go to their own special activities. The adults stay in the main hall for Bible teaching. The service lasts about an hour, or a little longer if we are celebrating communion. The first Sunday each month is a family service which includes a special focus on BB and GB.

After the service we all meet up together for "Fairtrade Cafe" and nibbles while the children play.

Please refer to the church calendar for more details or contact us to find out more.
