It's a bit different every week!
We make music together; we explore the Bible together; we pray; you might like to join in a craft activity, or a discussion, or simply sit quietly for a little while. It's a great format for families, with something for everyone. We finish with an optional short Eucharist before gathering together for refreshments.
