There is normally plenty going on for the community and we want to keep you up to date with all our news! There are different types of event that take place including courses [e.g. Alpha], socials [e.g. quizzes, music events, drama], presentations from the church calendar [e.g. nativity plays], and plenty of 'food' opportunities.
Due to COVID-19 the majority of events we would have liked to have provided throughout the year either had to be cancelled or put on hold for a period of time until circumstances changed [see COVID-19 latest]. Now, as we move into the spring 2021 and the hopeful easing of restrictions, so some future events have begun to emerge. These you will find in the scheduled events below. As time progresses we hope that many more events will appear.
If you would like any further information about upcoming events or any previous ones then please do not hesitate to contact us.

On Shrove Tuesday, February 16 th , we held a pancake party – on Zoom! We would normally be doing this in the church building of course, but desperate times called for desperate measures!
The invitations went out, and families got their ingredients ready, and at 6pm we all switched on with the laptop/tablet/phone in the kitchen or dining room.
We had 22 groups of all ages logged on, and the 45 minute programme included a couple of videos from Scripture Union to help our understanding about the start of Lent, background music while we cooked our pancakes and ate them, and a poll to find out the most popular toppings (lemon and sugar).
