Sunday Buds

Our Sunday morning group for pre-school age children.  We begin together in the main service at 10am each Sunday morning and come out to Sunday Buds at about 10:20am for craft, snacks and time to play with friends and learn about Jesus, while parents stay in the service.

This group takes place in the hall behind the church and children can be collected from here at the end of the service.

Messy Church - The first Sunday of the month at 4pm

Each month we explore a Bible story through lots of different activities. We celebrate what we have learned in a short interactive service, and then we finish our time with a simple meal together.  It’s quite hectic but enormous fun!

Who Let The Dads Out - 9am to 11am on the first Saturday of the month
