Our activities for younger people
Children are welcome at our Sunday services. Sometimes they will enjoy their own session whilst mum and dad worship in Church and on other days they can enjoy craft activities related to the worship whilst staying in church
Junior Craft Club
Ceased to meet from September 2018
Pizza and film evening Thursday evenings every foirtnight
The meeting designed for young people between the ages of 12 - 16. It is an informal evening running from 6.30 - 8.30pm. The idea is to get young people interested in talking to each other about things that matter to them. There will be minimal adult intervention ( although there will be helpers cooking pizza and making sure everything runs smoothly)
Meets every month (usually the last Monday in the month) from September through to July. Messy Church takes a bible or church celebration theme. Messy Church starts at 3.30pm after school has ended and begin with a simple snack meal for children and their parents, who are also encouraged to attend with their children. A story from the bible or other source precedes the opportunity to take part in five or six craft activities to choose from, all based around the theme for the day. Sometimes with the aid of video clips or music, a familiar story from the bible is told in language and pictures which children can understand told by an experienced teacher. Children are encouraged to take part in the story telling where appropriate.
Dates have not yet been set for the Autumn but the first Messy Church will be on September 24th 2018 onwards but will aim to be the last Monday each Month where possible. In the meantime if you would like to receive details of Messy Church events please e-mail Dianne click here for e-mail. Alternatively the date of the next Messy Church is advertised on the Messy Church poster outside the church.
To support the Dance school which meets on a Saturday in the Church Hall, church members provide hot drinks and bacon rolls for waiting parents while they chat to each other in the Church hall lounge. Not only does this raise funds for the Charity, but also provides an opportunity to talk with non-church goers.

£671 was raised for Diabetes UK in 2018
