Bible study, prayer and homegroups

Prior to the virus, a Bible study group met in the church lounge on Tuesdays at 10am, and there were other small group meetings. We hope these can resume after the lockdown.

 

Mothers' Union

Our Mothers' Union group normally meets on the first Thursday afternoon of the month at 2.30pm in the church lounge, with an interesting speaker and then tea. Our group is part of the wider Mothers' Union, (see their website) whose  aim is to support marriage and family life and protect children. For further details please contact Janet Jones on 01364 643627.

We hope this can resume after the lockdown.
