Church Services

Absent Friends

We had the following feedback from a previous Absent Friends service.
"I just wanted to pass on my sincere thanks for such a meaningful and exceptionally well presented service on Sunday evening. That was the first Absent Friends service I had been to and wasn't quite sure what to expect. I was very impressed."

We have had an Absent Friends service for the last four years. These services are a time of quiet reflection with some readings and songs. also, there is an opportunity to light a candle, or write something down. Most, if not all of those present came through afterwards to the hall for tea/coffee and some cake, and also a time to share with others who may have experienced something similar.

A photo of our prayer tree and candles lit in memory of those we have loved and lost from our moving service this evening. There was a wealth of music, poetry, readings and time to quietly reflect and remember.

We will almost certainly try to make this an annual service.

To Absent Friends: a people's festival of storytelling and remembrance has been set up to encourage people to hold events to remember our friends and family members who have died.

There is an Absent Friends website which will give you more information: www.toabsentfriends.org.uk.

Eco Congregation

The Church has agreed to register as an Eco Congregation. Find out more Here!

Whilst you can still watch the service on Zoom (albeit with the regular issues with Zoom), it is much better actually being in church, which many people have been doing for several weeks now; why not join us?

What is Messy Church?

While children are welcome at all of our services, Messy Church is held on the last Sunday of each month and is very much family orientated. Messy Church includes activities, story telling and concludes with a shared meal.

Messy Church is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality. It typically includes a welcome, a creative time to explore the biblical theme, a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, games and similar.

Messy Church finishes with a sit-down meal together at tables, to which everyone is welcome.
