Messy Church

A monthly term-time session for all the family – children, parents, grandparents and carers, with activities and a celebration centred around a Bible reading or theme. The session concludes with a meal for all. It’s fun and a great way to learn about faith. Come along and find out. Currently being held during term-time, on the third Friday of each month at 3:30pm.

Look out for the signs in the church garden on Clifton Drive North to confirm the date of the next session.

Craft Group

The group meet on Thursday afternoons in the Church Hall Community Room, at 1:00pm.  This is on a fortnightly basis and is open to all who enjoy crafting.  Our aim is to raise funds for the church by selling what we make through the regular Craft and Christmas Fairs.  We also provide  local charities with blankets that have been made. All are very welcome, as it is also a friendship group for people who feel lonely and want to come together and just enjoy a cup of tea and a chat.

Any enquiries please don’t hesitate to get in touch via the contact form.

Thursday Club

Alternate Thursdays 2:30pm (Winter time only from October to March, in the Church Hall). Everyone is invited to share an entertaining and interesting presentation. We have a wide variety of talented public speakers sharing a wealth of knowledge and experiences.
