Open the Book

Open the Book is a Bible Society initiative and there are a team of people who visit three of our local primary schools each month. When they visit schools they dress up and encourage some of the children to dress up to act out bible stories.

Refresh@4: First Sunday of the month, 4.00pm

This is a special family service for all ages. It lasts 30 to 40 minutes and they always finish with refreshments. It is a more relaxed service where there are bean bags to sit on and toys to play with.

Although these are activities more for children and families, we have many other activities and groups that take place at Church for everyone.
