Come and join our church family outdoors in our lovely countryside setting. This will be a really enjoyable activity for all ages and we do hope you will be able to join us. We meet in church first before we go outside and we suggest it would be best to wear comfortable walking shoes and possibly a raincoat. Hopefully, we won’t need a raincoat.
