Monday Club will be restarting as soon as possible subject to COVID19 restrictions.
When it does kick off, each week from 3:30-4:45pm, our team will be offering COVID secure activities for family groups in the main church building - perfect to drop in for on your way home for some FREE fun art and craft, challenges, snacks, drinks and fun Bible stories!
Please note this is a 'stay and play' activity rather than 'drop and go' - the idea is that families complete the activities together at tables so everything can be brought to you to enjoy by our team so everyone stays within their household 'bubble'. Pre-registration essential as numbers limited.

Prayer club is a chance for the children to listen to different Bible stories, a reflective craft activity that are related to the Bible story we do each week. Then at Christmas and Easter they write and read out prayers at the end of term service. For the summer term we will look at one story for a few weeks and retell the story in front of Key stage 1 and parents which includes songs and prayers.
Currently meeting virtually but still having a brilliant time!
BBC choir youth is an opportunity for the young people who attend choir practice on a Friday night to build relationship and community as they engage with a number of different activities, sharing meals together and playing epic games and challenges.
Currently paused due to COVID19
Crossover is a project run in the junior school for year 6 to prepare them for the transition to secondary school. Throughout the weeks we follow the story of Moses’ life linking them to different themes they might experience. At the end of the course to foster greater independence and confidence the group are taken out into the local community to complete a challenge to fund and source the food for a celebration meal on a very small budget talking to as many local people and businesses as possible.
Due to restart in 2021...
RBF co-ordinate, prepare and deliver a seven-session course around access to Holy Communion each year for children who wish to explore communion further.
Next group will be running in 2021...
