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, who meet upstairs.

Pepper and Mustard+  Infant and Junior groups, for up to secondary school age, who meet downstairs in the back hall.

Salt: a group for School Years 7 to 11, upstairs in the Youth Room on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month.

Maldon Food Bank If you would like to contribute there is a box in the entrance hall for donations of non-perishable food.

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.
