Groups, Courses and Activities

We run several youth groups of different ages. Contact us to find out more about this and whether you'd like to come along or help volunteer with activities.

Youth Alpha is an exciting journey and we have a project to begin offering this when we can run this safely after the pandemic.

The Church has several Bible Study groups of different ages and familiarities with the Bible. We all come to God at different stages and do not feel a level of knowledge is expected if you wish to join a study group. Contact us if you'd like to find out more about this.

We run Holiday Club events over the summer holidays for young people - and have managed to keep these up throughout the pandemic!

Help for Visitors

We have information booklets on Gainford Church - available near the entrance of the building.

Every day 9.00am to 4.00pm

Other Features

Collection box in church
