Groups and Regular Events


Sunday School

Time: 10:30 am

The Sunday School begins together with the whole of the congregation in Church each Sunday morning. On the second Sunday of each month they stay for the All Age Service, but on other Sundays, after about five minutes, they go out to their groups in the Church Hall (younger ones) and the "Scout Hut" (older ones) to enjoy their own activities.
These is a play area at the back of the Church for parents and young children who prefer to stay together in the service but need a bit of space.

Wednesdays in Church

At Church

Time: 7:30 pm until 9:00 pm

his is a midweek evening group for anyone who wants to take the next step in following Jesus - whether you've been a Christian for ages or are just exploring and have lots of questions! We sit round tables and start off with cake or pudding and a drink. Then we listen to a talk or watch a video that introduces a passage from the Bible, and we chat about it on our tables. We finish by praying together. This is a great group for getting to know a few other people at church better, and for deepening your faith. For more information contact Dave Griffith-Jones
