Wednesday Together - 1.30pm to 3.00pm
Wednesday’s Together is the name of our new group aimed especially, though not exclusively, at those who are of retirement age. It’s a space for folks to meet together in the middle of the week for a chat, a cuppa, a game, a craft; or anything else members want it to be.
Little Toms (our babies and toddlers’ group) are meeting in Church, 1.30pm-3.00pm on Mondays and Thursdays during term-time. During our session on the 18th December, we’ll be holding our first Little Toms’ pram service.
Introduction to Theology
In the new year Ian and Simon will be leading a course to look deeply into scripture and the sometimes-complicated Christian doctrines in which we believe. This will be more academic than the usual Life Group and whole-Church studies we are familiar with. There will be reading to do and maybe even homework to complete! Think and pray about whether this could be for you. When we meet will depend on those who sign-up.
