Our Family Choir runs on a Wednesday afternoon and is open to all ages and singers of all levels of experience.  They have learned and performed a varied repertoire including Irish songs, Fischy music, and music from ‘Frozen’.

Messy Church

Messy Church is for anyone aged 0 – 100 and is an active way of enjoying being a church family together. It is very informal with lots of activities and eating together too. It happens once a month after school on a Friday.

On Sundays

During our 10.30am Sunday Services there are supervised activities for children in Light Factory, which include Crèche for babies and children under 3 years (although they will sometimes join in the Godly Play sessions on the third Sunday of the month), Sparklers is our group for Pre-schoolers, Rockets is for children of Infant school age, Xplode for those in  Junior school  and a Youth Group for all those in Yr 7 and above.

Children & YouthThe groups have a short time together for worship and sharing before going their separate ways for more age appropriate activities, based around a bible story or theme.

Youth Group meets regularly  on Sunday evenings. This is an opportunity to reflect on our beliefs and to have space to challenge, discuss and learn together. We have regular social events together too.

FIX meets earlier and is a group for those in school years 5 and 6 and those transitioning in yr 7.

During April-June this year, these two groups will combine for ‘Made of More‘ a course for teenage boys run by the Golddigger Trust.

Dates for all these groups can be found on the church calendar and Karen Cribb can give you more information.
