  • puppet group - mondays

    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

    Once a year we run a Holiday Club usually during the February or Easter school holiday lasting from three to four mornings.  The church becomes transformed for the week into whatever the theme is and we have over 100 children come and have fun through stage presentation, drama, craft, and games.  The highlight often is finding out which leader is going to get gunged each day! Watch this space for details of our next Holiday Club!
