Our wonderful intergenerational themed services (Friends and Family) HAVE RETURNED with something for everyone whether used to church or a complete newcomer. A variety of expressions of worship in various parts of our church building, including a quiet service of Morning Prayer with short sermon, crafts and activities for all ages, singing and music, prayer, Bible readings and all-age talk, coffee and cakes. Everyone welcome!

We celebrated our first live service for several months on 6th March. It was a truly uplifting Lent service, attended by 11 children and 39 adults, who took the time to remember the people of Ukraine by lighting individual candles. April and May's services were equally well attended. There was no service in June as we celebrated Pentecost and Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee.

The service held on 3rd July was the story of Noah's Ark, and was much enjoyed by the 23 adults and 5 children who attended.

If you attend regularly or attending for the first time you will be very welcome to join in the various activities, eat the lovely cakes and biscuits and take home a little gift.

The next F and F is on Sunday 4th September and we hope you can join us then. The theme is the feeding of the 5000

Please bear with us as we make preparations to provide a variety of services across the age range, as we come out of lockdown.

Our "Shorter Communion Service": a simpler, guided service of Holy Communion lasting less than an hour. It may be particularly helpful to those new to church or unsure of church practices and traditions. Children are most welcome and will receive a Treasure Box to help them follow the service.

We hope to restart this service on 18 September 2022
