Crèche (Sunday)

You are welcome to use the crèche area, outside the auditorium, at any time during the morning service. This area has a screen and sound which allows those supervising their own children to still hear and participate in the service.


Discoverers (Sunday)

We have groups for children from 3 to 11years which meet during the morning service. We worship with the whole church family for the first 20 minutes, then meet in age-specific groups to have fun and learn about God together through Bible stories, games and activities. Visitors or any families new to the church are welcome to join in - just make yourself known to the welcoming team when you arrive.

At the start of each session, or if you are new to Toddlers, you'll be given a registration form to complete when you attend your first session. You can also complete the Toddlers Registration Form and either email it back or bring along when you attend. 

Who are we? We are a Church based group, the toddlers being just one of the many meetings that take place in the church.

Why hold these meetings? Good question!  The main reason is that we might share with you more than just our friendship and our facilities.  We are a group of Christians who have found the answer to all our needs in Christ.  We pray that you might know him too.  

There will be hot drinks and biscuits for the adults, so please feel free to bring along any snacks/drinks for your child.

Sessions are £2 per family which is used towards the running costs of the group(paid at the door on the day).

Connect with the Toddlers Facebook page for regular updates.

Small Groups

We encourage everyone who comes to our church to join one of the many small groups which meet regularly in homes around the town.

The groups meet on a variety of evenings or some during the day. The small groups aim to pastorally care for one another, getting to know each other as they spend time together so that no-one feels ‘lost in the crowd’ of a large congregation.

The groups also pray for and with one another, to worship together, to actively explore biblical teaching together, and to find creative ways to share their faith with others. For more information, and to find a group near you, please contact the church office.
