Sunday Club - This fun group welcomes all children to join in craft and art activities during the morning service each Sunday from 10.30am (except 5th Sunday of the month when we have a united service which may be at another church).  For further details please contact Mariola 07547 428448 or Angela 07720 810532.

Choir Practice - The Choir are presently managing with 2/3 people each week and could do with an injection of new blood - so if you enjoy singing and would like to join in you would be more than welcome. Please contact Clare Christie for more detail.

Parish Lay Ministers - If you believe you have a calling to undertake this aspect of Church life, there are training programmes to help guide you towards being part of a growing mission within the Church of England.  Once you have been trained and authorised (this is usually following the Foundation Course and some other qualifying courses covering worship, child protection and others) you may be asked to be a sick visitor, help construct and conduct those services that don't require a priest or other ordained clergy.  For more information please contact us.

Confirmation Classes - You are never too old for this!  Many of our most recent candidates have been what some might term as being in their 'middle years', whilst others have been at the very earliest years (usually the age of ten to twelve is recommended as a starting point for this part of ones development in the Church).  Classes are usually run locally and take approximately eight weeks to complete, more definite dates are provided by the officiant when the candidate makes known their intention to undertake this step in their development of their faith.
