Children of all ages are most welcome at all of our services.   In addition, most months, usually on the first Sunday we hold a service especially for children and families called ‘Church Done Differently’.

‘Church Done Differently’ services are highly informal and very relaxed.   Instead of using the church pews, we sit at tables ‘café-style’ at the back of church and begin with drinks, cake and biscuits.

Each service features some lively songs with actions, a treasure hunt around the church building, a talk that is often led by puppets as well as craft activities to complete and take home.

Children come with their parents and or grandparents but folks of all ages from zero to a 100 or more, with or without children will be made very, very welcome.

Here is what folks have said about 'Church Done Differently'
