We have a very active Junior Church
for young people, which meets most Sunday Mornings. We have sessions in the GARDEN
after school on Thursdays. We have the PLAYROOM
on Wednesday mornings for Toddlers.
We have the GARDEN
for anyone to come and volunteer on Thursdays and Sundays. We have a LARDER
community fridge that is available four times per week, that works alongside the FOODBANK

that gives away clothing to anyone who would like it.
Finally, the one thing that holds us together as God's people, are the times of collective worship on Sunday
and Thursday mornings.
