Little Lambs is a new group which starts in September.
This group is a very informal group where babies and toddlers and their parents, grandparents or carers can get to know each other, and the youngsters can play together.
There will be toys, books, music, songs, messy play and snacks to enjoy.
Come along with your little ones and try out this new group

Busy Bees is held on alternate Thursdays between 4 and 5pm.
Children up to the age of 7 years old (Year 2) buzz into a warm atmosphere created by Diane and Shawn.
Stories, art and play activities based on a Christian theme are there to enjoy. At snack time children often make up their own prayers.
Parents and/or grandparents are actively involved in this group and help with refreshments, activities and singing. 
We finish our session with songs before the children buzz off.

Groovers and Shakers is held on the same Thursday evening as Busy Bees between 6.15pm and 8pm. Children up to the age of 11 years (Year 6) enjoy games with Shawn, Vanessa and Barbara and snacks are enjoyed. We worship through song and prayer and enjoy learning through stories, fun activities and games. We end our evening by singing Abba Father.

Trendy Teens meet on the alternate Thursday evening between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.
Young people up to the age of 16 years (Year 11) meet, usually in the Upper Room, to share fellowship and learning. Chat and snacks with Shawn and Vanessa are enjoyed. Learning is through lively discussion, Bible readings and fun activities. We play games and end our evening by saying the Lord’s prayer. This group are actively involved in the development and delivery the Christingle service which is held in December.
