The sense of family is reinforced by the variety of weekly activities which have been a regular part of the church’s life: Rainbows, Beavers, Cubs, Brownies, Scouts and Guides meet to engage the enthusiasm and energy of youngsters from 6 to 16-plus (plus a good many years in some cases!); Women’s Fellowship and Ladies’ Circle, and a club for retired gentlemen (where retired gentlemen are also admitted if they behave themselves!); a Toddlers’ group meets two mornings a week, and we have an Orchestra and a Music Society. The premises are also used from time to time by local societies for special occasions such as the annual Carnival.
Sunday services attract over 50 worshippers at the 10.45am service while the 6.15pm service has a smaller nucleus but offers an opportunity for quiet reflection. Once a month (on the third Sunday) we hold our Breakfast Church which begins at about 10.15am ith a continental breakfast, followed by an interactive time of worship. CCLI licensing allows for the many and varied ways in which worship can be shared through sound and vision. Hymn words, Bible readings and prayers can be displayed, along with any other pictures, text, music or sound a preacher might wish to employ. Bible Study is offered regularly in the homes of our congregational members. Cafe Praise, on Saturday evenings, is a very informal (and popular) alternative worship style which takes place five or six times a year. Additional special services such as our Christingle Service, school Harvest Festival, and Blue Christmas services all welcome the local community into our church.
