  • puppet group - Wednesdays

    The puppet group meets once a week in term time on Wednesday afternoons from 5:00 - 6:15pm in The Lantern and is open to all ages from 9 upwards. We have a fantastic selection of 'muppet-style' rod arm puppets, plus a whole range of props as well!  


    We use our puppets throughout the week in a variety of different ways - in the various mid-week children's groups, at local schools, on Sundays, and at special events. Children love our puppets and respond to them almost as to real people. We very much see this as a 'ministry', as we seek to communicate the Good News of Jesus in a variety of different ways and styles to different ages.


    All are welcome to come and have a go and see whether this is something for you.

  • Holiday Club

    Tuesday 14th August - Friday 17th August 2018 10-12:30 pm

    This year our theme is a Sports club.  The Gaffer and Head Coach are ready to guide their players (the children) through their training.  As they do so they'll uncover how God's people worked together (or not) through various stories in the Bible.  There will be the usual craft, games, messy games and gunging.

    Cost £2 per morning. To book click  here: /whats-on/upcoming-events
