Church in Different Ways

We believe that church is far more than a place you visit once a week. As such, we enjoy “doing church in a different way” from time to time, in the form of Messy Church, which brings both young and old together to have fun whilst exploring a specific theme.

We also enjoy getting together for social events such as Coffee Mornings and our Christmas Fair. You don’t have to come to church on a Sunday morning to be a part of our Church Family.

Fundraising and supporting others

Many of these events also help us to raise funds for both the upkeep of our church and other good causes. Over the past few years we have, as a church, donated at least 10% of the funds we have raised. This is something we aim to continue, and so we try to find a balance between providing resources for our community and raising funds through the events we run each year.  

Find out more about each of the events below, and be sure to check out our calendarnews page and Facebook for dates of each one. 

Messy Church is a fun way to explore key themes within the Bible using crafts, games, and activities. It is aimed at children and teens, however we’ve found that the adult helpers enjoy Messy Church just as much as the children! We hold a handful of Messy Church sessions throughout the year, especially at Christmas, Easter, and Harvest. 

Throughout the year we hold several coffee mornings, providing an opportunity for us to come together as a community and have a chat over a good cup of tea or coffee. 

Coffee mornings also help us to raise funds, for both the upkeep of our church as well as other projects, such as Christian Aid and local charities.

Our Christmas Fair has been a highlight of the year for a very long time now. Our craft group provide us with a wonderful selection of handmade gifts for sale, we always have a range of cakes and preserves made by members of the church, and the tombola and raffle are always big hits with visitors. Add in the games and second-hand stall, and it’s the perfect place to start your Christmas shopping.

Our Folk Carol Service is a fun and moving service held on the Sunday closest to Christmas. It is led by our worship leader, Jonathan, and friends who introduce us to a range of traditional folk carols alongside old favourites. It is always a lively experience, whilst retaining a sense of reverence thanks to the candlelit service and readings from the gospels. Why not come along and experience it yourself this year?
