We have especially strong links with our two church schools (see below), being actively involved with their governing bodies, whilst our ministers and lay members take part in assemblies, religious education and visits to the schools.

The Tea Service
Once a month we have our tea service. This specially for our younger folk. We start with craft activities, followed by action songs, a story and prayer. The children then share tea - sandwiches and cakes made by our lovely team and tea and cake for adults. It’s all very relaxed and friendly with a small slice of chaos! Everyone is very welcome. children of all ages.
