After the recent Covid-19 Lock down we are slowly re-opening and re-starting all our Church activities. Everyone is very welcome to come to (almost) any of our regular meetings. Some require special talents, a few are for particular age groups perhaps, and one or two are full at the moment. But there is plenty to try here which doesn’t need expertise with a screwdriver, a racquet or a toddler; see the calendar for details of particular meetings and do come along.

10.00 am Scrabble Club: for those who like company, chat and board games
7.30 pm Badminton Club, weekly; improve your badminton skills with exercise and friendly competition.
The working party is a group of members/friends with DIY skills and experience who undertake maintenance tasks and ‘odd jobs’ as needed. The church premises are beautifully cleaned and maintained by our dedicated caretakers, supported by this small group.
They carry out routine maintenance work, repair jobs, painting, cleaning outside areas and any odd jobs as required. It is also a time of informal fellowship and a cup of coffee. The workload fluctuates quite considerably and help is particularly welcome as we prepare for special events, those busy periods at Christmas, Easter, Harvest, concerts, etc.
10.00 am Tuesday friendship Club: entertainment, lunch & refreshments
Meets every Tuesday from 10.00 to 3.00. An opportunity for those who spend much of their time alone and who wish for some care and company and to enjoy a day of games, music and friendship. There is also a hot lunch and refreshments served throughout the day. The church minibus provides transport if required.

Music is an important feature of our worship, and the group sings an introit and an anthem on Sunday mornings as well as leading the hymn singing. The music reflects the various seasons of the year and is both traditional and contemporary. If you can read music and sing a part, you are warmly invited to join with us, and see if this is for you.
For more information, please speak to one of the singers after a service, who will point out their secretary.
