Are there any activities for my children/family at your church?

We welcome children to our worships but find that at present they tend only to come to our family worships and special worships e.g. Christmas, Easter, Harvest. We hold a family worship once a month on a Sunday morning which is especially focused on ministry to and with children with adults enjoying the less formal type of worship too.

What are your worships like?

We have varied types of worship which are led by a variety of people and no two will be the same. Some will be more traditional and others more contemporary with the use of videos etc. All worships will have elements of music, prayer, scripture and focus moments.
