Chi Rho

Our Chi Rho group is for young people P6 and older. We gather every 2nd Sunday as part of the 10.30am Sunday service but move to the Church Hall to continue our own bible-based discussion and activities. These activities usually centre around food and games which are linked with the theme of that week’s service.

Upcoming Chi-Rho dates:

19 December – Nativity

Messy Church

This is a once-a-month time of craft, worship and eating together for the whole family in the Church Hall. Normally held on the last Saturday in the month at 4pm, we start with some fun crafts, have something nice to eat, then end with a bible story and some songs. Suitable for all ages, children must be accompanied by an adult.

Our next Messy Church is on 27th November.

Holiday Club

A week long bible-based holiday club suitable for all primary school children. Running from 10am to 12 noon, Monday to Friday in the Church Hall, with a special service on the final Sunday. Lots of games, activities and crafts suitable for all. Children can be dropped off and snack is provided.

Tots and Toddlers

Our groups are for parents/grandparents who have care of pre-school children and would like an opportunity to meet up with others in the same position. This time together gives a chance for children to socialise with each other and for adults to have some support and company. We meet on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, 9.30am – 11am during school term time.

Uniformed Organisations

Rainbows is for girls age 5-7. Being a Rainbow is all about having the space to learn new things and have fun. Through taking part in a range of activities with girls of their own age, Rainbows develop self confidence and make lots of new friends. We do arts and crafts, play games, learn new skills, earn badges, have campfires and make a promise to be kind and helpful.

Brownies is about getting together to work on badges, learn new skills, play games and see friends. It’s about trying activities and going to events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays.
All Brownies are sure to try new things and take on a broad range of challenges as they explore the topics that sit within our six programme themes – Know Myself,  Express Myself,  Be Well,  Have Adventures,  Take Action and Skills For My Future.

Guides have a varied programme designed to inspire and challenge girls from age 10 – 14 years of age. They will be involved in exciting activities at regular meetings to special events and trips away. The Guides will work on different badges and awards which will allow them to develop new skills and try new challenges.
