News and Events
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.
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. November's session is on the 14th.
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.
Action for Children - Sunday 18 November
At our morning service on 18 November there will be a chance to hear the latest on the work of Action for Children, a charity with which our church has a very long association. There will be a chance to donate to the charity, either at the service or by taking a box away to fill with your loose change.
Prayer & Praise Fellowship Group - Sunday 18 November
Come and join a new group meeting in Room 2 at church from 5.00-6.15 pm every third Sunday of the month (when there is commonly no evening service). The group will share a simple meal of homemade soup and a roll and then join together in some relaxed praise and worship music and prayer of various kinds, based around a Bible passage.
November Fayre - Saturday 24 November 10.30 am to 1.00 pm
Be sure to come along to check out the stalls for a bargain or to get a few Christmas presents. Refreshments available throughout and hot lunch available from 12.00.
Our old friend Andi Markham from Kids UK will have some of his puppet friends with him and they will be performing just after 11.00 so be sure to be there for that.
All proceeds will go to Methodist Church missions in the UK or abroad.
Turkey and Tinsel - 29 November fro 12.00 noon
Make sure you don't miss out on our annual Christmas social event for the senior members of the community. There will be a Christmas lunch followed by musical entertainment, but more than anything the opportunity to see old friends or make new ones.
Everyone is welcome. If you need some encouragement or want to find out any more about it please contact the office and we will get someone from the Turkey and Tinsel to give you a call.
Christmas in Song - Saturday 8 December from 7.30 pm
