Other Community Events
Our Sunday school meets in the Parish Lounge at the 9.30 service. School is the traditional name, though it is not really a school but a place for children to be cared for and nurtured in a faith that declares the love of God. They share activities, Bible stories, and songs. Our children gather with the whole Church and then have their own time before rejoining the main congregation. However, on the 4th Sunday each month the children assist with the 9:30 am all-age service in Church.

Our Mothers Union is a group of women who are part of a worldwide Anglican organisation. They meet at 1pm on the second Tuesday of most months. They support one another, usually have a speaker with a socially current issue to present, and support their aims of caring for children, women and family life.
Mothers Union is a global Christian movement working with people of all faiths to develop communities, strengthen families and advocate for change.
This group is open to people of all faiths and religions, gender and age.
We have a home group that gathers once a month. We meet for a shared meal and use the time to talk about issues concerning life and faith. All are welcome. Times vary so you will need to contact us for the time and place.
