Shrove Tuesday Supper.


Our Shrove Tuesday supper was an enjoyable evening and well attended.

A big thank you to everyone who helped to make it successful by helping to prepare or serve food, by donating desserts, and to those of you who bought raffle prizes along, not forgetting everyone who came and supported us on the evening.

The evening raised £338.


Lent Course.


This will continue during March each Wednesday at 10.30am.

It will use the study material entitled ‘Making All Things New’ provided by the charity ‘Embrace the Middle East’.

To cover the cost of the study material and support the charity a voluntary donation of £1 per week (£6 in total) is requested.

For anyone interested further information can be found at


Lent Lunches.


These continue each Thursday during the month, taking place at St. John’s Methodist Church. The lunch consists, as usual, of soup, a bread roll, cheese and biscuits finishing with tea or coffee and will cost £2.50. As in previous years catering and an informal talk will be provided by each church in turn and the proceeds will be shared by both for their chosen charities.

Everyone is welcome.


Family Welcome.


Starting in March we will try a new project to welcome families, particularly those that have recently had a child Christened in church, to an informal gathering with lively modern songs, readings and simple prayers. This should give a less intimidating introduction to church than regular services might do.

These will occur on the first Sunday of the month at 11.00am.

All will be welcome.
