Children and Young People’s Groups on Sunday mornings.
On the first Sunday of the month we all stay together in Church. On the remaining Sundays the children join the first part of the service, then go to separate parts of the building for their activities. We have three groups:

Mustard: an Early Years group, with crèche, downstairs in the Back Hall.
Pepper: a Junior group, for up to secondary school age, upstairs in the Green Room.
Salt: a group for School Years 7 to 11, upstairs in the Youth Room on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month.
