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.

If you wish to use the church at any time please check with the deacons first to make sure this is ok and then contact Sheila Little to book the date.

 If you borrow anything from the church please make a note on the list in the back hall and also note when it is returned.

 If you have any notices please let Sheila Little have them by Friday lunch time.
