Sunday morning children’s activities

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, 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. 

Notices If you have any items for the notices please let Sheila Little have them by Friday lunchtime. If you are emailing PLEASE put the subject as “notices” as this makes it easier for me to pick them out.

If you wish to use the church at any time, please check with the deacons to see if it is ok and then check with Sheila Little to make sure the church is free.
