Sunday School - we meet weekly at 9.15am. There is also a creche for babies and toddlers. All are welcomed into the church service during the Peace. The Sunday School plays a big part in the life of our church. We have various events to raise money for different charities. We take an active part in the family service through readings, drama and prayers. We also hold three special annual events which all the children take part in. These are the 'Crowning of the Rose Queen' , the 'Christingle service' and the 'Nativity'.

Choir - we have a choir that sings for all services including weddings and funerals if requested. We offer a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us. An ability to read music is helpful but not essential.

Toast Time Toddlers - meet in the Church Hall Tuesdays 9.30am to 11.00am

Mothers' Union - our branch of the Mothers Union, which is a worldwide Christian organisation, meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm. Any lady of any age can be a member. What do we do?  Well we try to involve our members in the life of our church and Sunday School. We have interesting speakers, go on trips, learn about other countries through our branch link in South Africa. We visit the sick and those who just want a chat or need someone to listen.

Keep Fit - we meet on Monday afternoon in the Church Hall. There is a very friendly  atmosphere with plenty of laughs along with the excercise.
