News and Events

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience whilst our building project is going ahead and check for news on the Building Work page.

We use this page to let everyone know about upcoming events in our church community.

Church with coffee and cake

Around once a month on a Sunday evening we have a cafe-style service, a service in a relaxed and conversational style, enlivened by music, cake, coffee and tea.   Keep an eye on the Worship page and come along.  If you've never tried casual, chatty church you might find it's just your cup of tea.  

Extend exercise

A time to join in some manageable exercise suitable for senior citizens.  You might be surprised how much you benefit from doing just a little more than you thought you could!  Sessions are from 12.00 am to 2.00 pm once a month, including a light lunch. Get in touch if you would like to come, or need a little encouragement. 

Refugee Crisis 

A working group in our Circuit is looking at ways to help with this crisis. Have a look at the special Refugee page for details.  If you would like to be involved with this group, ask the office and we will put you in touch.  They meet regularly at different churches around the circuit.

There are lots of practical ways you can get involved with our efforts to help with this huge crisis.  Please tell us if you can help with anything - or if you've thought of something we might be able to do that isn't on the list on the refugee page yet.

Nkanfoa Methodist School and Church Aid

To raise funds for the Nkanfoa Methodist School in Ghana.  The Big Buffet Lunch was fabulous, now try the Afternoon Tea on Saturday 7 July (3.00-5.00). Contact Ian and Diana at by 3 July for a ticket.

A Bite Out - Friday 13 July at the Toby Carvery in Sutton Park

Come and join a group of us for a meal, the more the merrier! So we know how big a reservation to make, please get a ticket (details in the Messenger or via the office). Tickets are free if you're in full time education, otherwise £7.50 a head, and will include a visit to the carvery. Starters, puddings, drinks etc available as extras on the night.

In-Tent on Prayer - 12-19 August

We are committing to praying for an entire week in August - 168 hours. You're welcome to join in as you can. Come alone, or with friends and family. Come when you can. Stay for as long as you wish. If you can commit to being a part of our chain of prayer for a particular time, an hour (or more!) on any particular day during the week, then please sign up on the sheets in church.

More details on the Pray with us page.
