Exploring the Christian faith

Start! Course

The Start! Course kicks off at 10.45am on Wednesday 8 February and runs for six weeks.  It is a ‘start from scratch’ way of exploring the Christian faith.  Each week will finish in time for you to have lunch at our Lunch Club if you wish.  No need to book – simply come along.

Coffee Mates

Coffee Mates meets Fridays during term time from 10.30 am to noon. Why not bring a friend along for a chat over coffee and cake? Coffee Mates will be free from November to February to support our community during the Cost of Living Crisis.

Knit and Natter – The group will run at the same time as Coffee Mates, 10.30am-12 noon, so we have the added pleasure of drinks and lovely cakes on offer while we knit. The only cost is for your drinks and cake.  The group is for all those who love knitting or have always wanted to have a go and would like to start with something simple.  Anyone who crochets is very welcome to join us and maybe show us how to crochet!  All are welcome.  We have a supply of wool and there will be some spare needles.  If anyone has any needles or patterns they would like to pass on please get in touch.

An Art Group also meet during Coffee Mates if you would like to bring a project – all are welcome.

If you are available on Fridays to help set up or serve at Coffee Mates (you don’t need to commit to a whole morning) please contact Miriam or Amanda.

Lunch Club

Lunch Club meets most Wednesdays 11.30am-2pm. We enjoy activities, social time, a thought for the day and of course a hot meal cooked by Bobbie. Lunch Club will be free from November to February. If you would like more details, please contact Amanda in the office.

If you are free on Wednesday and have a gift for running activities, leading a thought for the day or serving by washing up please contact Bobbie or Amanda in the office for more details.

Update on Covid Measures

Face Coverings from 20 March – As announced during February, we are updating our COVID protocols.  These changes will take effect from 20 March.

What is staying the same:

We will continue to have chairs by the windows – those at the rear of the church will be for those who wish to wear masks.

We will continue to broadcast our 10.30am Sunday services on Zoom for those who are unable to attend in person.

We will continue to hold a monthly 9am Sunday service, with 2m social distancing and face coverings – please contact the office to enquire or book a place at this service.

What is changing:

  • Wearing a face covering during a Sunday service will be optional from 20 March – that includes moving around the building, and it includes singing.  Please be gracious with one another, in particular those who make a different choice to you.

‘Monday Prayers for our Country’

On Zoom at 6pm on Mondays for 30 minutes, term time only.

We pray for our government and other leaders, for issues of concern in the news, for the poor and marginalised, for Christian witness. If you would like to join in (you can join in silently if you prefer) please contact the office or Bobbie for the link.
