Mission

Mission means 'being sent'. God sends us out and also brings people to us in many different ways so that we can serve others and help them to discover more of God's wonderful life.

Stay and Play

This is a group for parents, carers and small children, aged 0-3. It was originally set up thirty years ago as the 'Mums Club' to help support new mothers in the village, and has been running continuously ever since.

Stay and Play offers a friendly welcome, the opportunity to make new friends and share the experiences of parenthood and caring for young children, as well as offering stimulating activities for your little ones. We have a wide range of toys, books and games. We offer craft activities and a weekly story and song time. At the end of each term we have a special party with a puppet show. We occasionally organise trips, outdoor activities and a 'toddler praise' worship service as well.

Meetings:

Luncheon Club

Delicious cakes

Luncheon Club is a place for people of all ages to come and enjoy a good quality meal and friendly company. It takes place twice a month. At our main Luncheon Club lunch we serve a hot, two course lunch followed by coffee and mints. All food is freshly prepared on the premises and only the finest ingredients used. On the alternate fortnight we hold a short Luncheon Club Christian worship service followed by a 'lesser lunch'. Lunch includes a selection of sandwiches, quiches, scones and cakes - some very healthy and others very naughty! There is no charge for the lunch but voluntary donations cover the cost of the ingredients. Any surplus money goes towards special meals and gifts at Christmas and Easter and to summer outings.

Busy Luncheon Club

Come alone or bring a friend... there is always a welcome at Luncheon Club. Transport can be arranged if necessary. Please contact the church to arrange this.

Meetings:

Uhuru Ministries

Church Member Terry Newton has set up and developed this project in Kenya which reaches out to children on the street, to orphans, to families and includes those affected in some way by HIV/AIDs. It runs a small residential home for ex street children and also provides support to children living in the community. Much of the work involves getting children to school, college/university or into some form of craft training, all of which is aimed at providing youngsters with hope for the future.
