On the first, third and fifth Tuesdays in the month there is a well attended ‘Pause for Prayer’ session at 10.15am followed by a Coffee Morning. On the first Tuesday of the month there is a lunch from 12.15 to 1.30pm.
Bible Study courses are held during Lent and at other times of the year. On occasional Friday evenings the church hosts and serves a meal. The atmosphere is warm, intimate and there is always a post-dinner speech or presentation. Other social events such as Quizzes, Barbecues and Strawberry Teas give more oppurtunity for outreach as well as fundraising.
