Messy Church has been held at the church for over 9 years now and we try to hold one every two months or so. They are aimed at children aged 5 to 14 and their parent or grandparent who stay and play together.
The sessions start at 10.30am with table games and refreshments are served. At 11am, the craft sessions start and are always on a biblical theme. Small and large crafts are worked on and all are fun to do. This lasts for an hour. After the crafts, we assemble for our short act of worship and then lunch is served. The sessions are over by 1pm.
The Messy Church is a very popular event and places are limited so you need to be there prompt! Look for the banner advert outside church. There is no charge for attendance but we do insist that children are accompanied by an adult.

Our Sunday worship at 11 a.m. caters for the youth in our congregation. After joining with us to listen to the children’s address, they then go into the School Room for fun with bible stories and crafts. A team of leaders help to man the group under the direction of the Junior Church leader, Sr Anita Webb.

Our very own group of Scouts, Cubs & Beavers starts with the Beaver group meeting from 6pm to 7.15pm and caters for boys and girls within the age group 6 and 7.
