Prayer & Praise
Once a month at 6pm - come for coffee at 5.50.
A service with contemporary worship, a short message and open prayer for the world, the village, our friends and our mission.
Children are welcome to all our services, although they will probably feel more comfortable at 10.30.
Currently (Autumn 2022) we are not running Sunday School, however we are looking to restart this soon.
We have a Cosey Corner
where little ones can sit with parents and some resources for older children.
We organise Messy Church in the Village Hall when we can.
The next one will be a Christingle special at 4 pm on Sunday 11 Dec.
Open the Book
A couple of times a term, we take "Open the Book" to the village school. The team act out a short bible story for the children.
We believe it is really important for church members to belong to a Home Group for fellowship, bible study and prayer.
When there is the demand, we run courses such as Alpha or Christianity Explored for those trying to find out about the Christian faith.
We have a number of Home Groups:
Wednesday Home Group
8.00 pm every Wednesday.

Wednesday Larch Close Group
7.00 pm every other Wednesday, Chez Froud.
