We place a temporary ramp outside, ready for those coming to services, to gain access. This is used on a regular basis by at least one member of church, who arrives on a mobility scooter.

We have the loop system, so please tell the church warden if you need any help.

Brownies

Tuesdays, term term only. All welcome.

Use your Loaf, bread making once a month. Come along, knead your bread, enjoy a quiet time in reflection, have a bite to eat together at lunch time and then, on your way home, give some of your bread away to a stranger, perhaps the person standing at the bus stop, opposite the church, or an elderly neighbour who is house bound - you choose.


Help for Visitors

During Term Time, Coffee Stop is open in the church hall on Tuesday mornings, from 10am. It's an ideal place for a cuppa and a chat, and prayer too if you'd like that.
