Church Prayer Meeting
Usually held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, 8.00pm – 9.00pm, in the Parish Room after Church Tea. Everyone is invited to pray together for the life of the church, the town and wider world.
Church Tea – Bring and Share
Wednesday evenings at 6.30pm for one hour. Simply bring whatever you’ve made for your own tea and share it (hot or cold, savoury and sweet). It’s a great opportunity to get to know others.
We are a Fairtrade Church and use Fairly Traded goods for all our refreshments.
This is held on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the year from 10am to 12 noon. Saturday Café serves coffee, tea, light snacks and cakes. Friday Café serves coffee, tea, cake and biscuits. Everyone is welcome!
Held on the third Thursday of each month from 8.00pm at The Falcon Social Club on Westgate. A relaxed, informal gathering often with a quiz or games, always with a warm welcome. Other events on an ad hoc basis.
Prayer and Pastoral Care
Through prayer and pastoral care, we try, with God’s guidance, to meet the needs of our church family and the wider community. We help to organise Baptism preparation evenings and share the parents’ joy when welcoming their child into our church family. We give support for bereaved families and organise an ‘All Souls’ service each November to remember loved ones lost.
