Thanks for visiting our website. If you want to find out more then please contact us or simply drop in for a chat. I'm normally around during the week - and, of course, on Sundays.
Over the coming days I'm preparing for Advent and Christmas. A time to celebrate God's greatest gift to us - his only son, Jesus.
Rev. Claire Blatchford
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.
Sunday Evenings - 6:30pm
We hold different types of evening service during the month.
Credo Cafe is a relaxed cafe-style event where we examine Christianity or a topical Christian Topic
Reflective Communion is a quieter space to share communion, worship God and give thanks for his amazing gift of Jesus.
