Sunday Groups

Http W7g4Jf85jEk UYbMbYY3f4I AAAAAAAAJNM KctZPkrP7Xo S1600 FamilyGroups for children and young people meet during the service on a Sunday morning.  Everyone starts in service together, before the young people go over to the Parish Centre (next to the church) for their own activities. We also run a crèche for pre-school children. When it is an all age service (usually the first Sunday of the month), everyone stays in church together.
