Groups, Courses and Activities

Volunteers manage the grounds maintenance .We have regular volunteers who cut and strim the grass in the Churchyard. There are also other work party events to complete specific tasks , these are run on an as needed basis. The Churchyard is being managed in a way that it is beneficial to wildlife, so we have longer grass margins and wildflower areas , these are only cut on an annual basis.

We have a small kitchenette to the rear of the Church , this can be used for refreshments following our monthly family services or for special events and services.
