Our Mission Statement: we will care for creation, for the community, and for the world for God’s sake.
Major reordering/refurbishing of the chapel interior in 2009 gives us a welcoming and flexible space, which together with rooms old and new, (modern kitchen and toilet facilities) enables us to host a wide variety of activities, initiated by ourselves or groups/individuals in the community.
Weekly Sunday worship (10.30.a.m.) is at the heart of our life; Sunday Club encourages young people to be part of this. One-off events encourage wider/deeper participation by local young people – eg. Sleepovers in 2011 focussing on Homelessness/Clean Water needs in Africa .
Café Church: Sunday afternoons about 7 times a year: provides a valued opportunity (with refreshments, craft activities, space to think & talk) for up to 40 people (many not otherwise involved with us; 9 to 90 in age) to enjoy one another’s company.
3 weekday Fellowship Groups.
A committed Eco-Group encourage us as a Chapel and as individuals to live more sustainably; their year-round activity is focussed in an annual Eco-Weekend; we hold the Eco-Church award. We are a Fair-Trade church.
Ecumenical working is central for us; we signed a Declaration of Intent with St.George’s Parish Church in 1993 committing the 2 churches to do nothing apart that we can do together. We have been members of the Clun Anglican Benefice Local Ministry Development Group since its inception. United Worship replaces our separate services on some 15 Sundays a year; both church buildings host such services; additionally some are held out-of-doors, particularly at Easter. Promotion of Fair-Trade, Soup-and-Pudding Lunches in Lent, Holiday Clubs, involvement in Clun Show, Easter Monday Egg-stravaganza, an Epiphany Party, a Summer BBQ, joint publicity at Christmas and Easter are some of the significant parts of the Churches Together scene.
