In addition to our Sunday morning Services, the following regular activities also take place on the church premises:
Prayer Time from 10.00am weekly, before morning worship. Everyone is welcome to join in this short time of informal prayers for our church, our community and beyond.
The Art Group meets each Monday. The first session is from 9.30 a.m. to 12 noon with a further session from 1.30 p.m to 4 p.m. Some members attend both sessions and stay for lunch. In reality this means that people are free to start or finish any time between 9.30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
We cater for anyone from complete beginners to experts. We rarely have teachers as there is always someone in the group who can offer advice such as which type of brush to use, how to mix colours, etc. Members use various mediums for their art work, ie water-colour, pastels and acrylics. Others produce cross-stitch and similar work. We also have a library and instructional videos and DVD's.
Coffee/Tea and Biscuits are available shortly after 10 a.m. and 2.30 p.m. The charge is £1.50 per session.
Anyone is welcome to join us. You can drop in at any time on a Monday to meet us and to see what we do without any obligation. Coffee-time is always a good time to do this.
A short service of Morning Prayer takes place each Wednesday morning at 10.00am except on the first Wednesday of each month when there is a short Communion Service instead. Everyone is welcome.
'Praise and Play' — From 10.30 — 12 noon on 2nd & 4th Wednesday of each month.
