Baptism Discovery Mornings
Feel free to pop into Roots coffee shop at the church on the 3rd Monday of each month between 11 am and 12 noon to ask any questions you may have about baptism, naming ceremonies or thanksgiving ceremonies for children. There will be helpful leaflets to take away.
Messy Church takes place on Wednesdays from 4 to 6 pm. There is crafts and games and one or two challenges for the first hour, followed by a short time in church and then a meal for everyone. It is free and there is no need to book. All ages welcome, however, all children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Please note there is no Messy Church in July.

That Spring Thing
Twenty children aged 5 to 11 came on Wednesday 31st May to enjoy our half term activity day called ‘That Spring Thing.’ Through bible stories, action songs, games, decorating biscuits, prayer stations, planting seeds and dancing we were reminded of God’s love for us shown in the Parable of the Lost Sheep and we thought about what helps us to grow into the people that God wants us to be through the Parable of the Sower. By the end of the day everyone was relieved that I had just about mastered how to do an impression of a butterfly with my hands. Many thanks to all who helped to prepare for the day and helped on the day itself.
