Activities and groups using the church

Monday Morning Meeting Point

This group for women in the village is linked to MWiB, the national Methodist women's association. It has a flourishing membership of over 50 with a variety of social and devotional activities. It meets every fortnight and also hosts a regular luncheon club.

Prayer Group

Meet in the church Prayer Space every Wednesday morning at 9.15am. 

Busy Bees Toddler Group

A thriving group of mothers and toddlers meets in the Church Hall on Wednesdays from 1.30-3pm. during term times. Plenty of play activities for the toddlers and a good opportunity for Mums to meet over a cup of coffee. The group is always staffed by at least two CRB cleared members of the church.

"Stitch in Time"

We meet on the 1st and 3rd. Tuesdays of each month in the Church Hall from 2pm-4pm where we assemble recyclable menstruation hygiene kits for girls and women' living mainly in developing countries, so that they do not miss days from their education/work. Visit for more information. We also knit Fish&Chip sweaters and toys for new-born babies who have no clothes. An ability to knit or sew is not necessary to join us. There are other things to do. Come for a cuppa and a chat! 

House Groups

Two or three house groups with between 8-10 members meet at regular intervals throughout the year, usually in 4-5 week sessions for bible study and fellowship.

Age UK Seated Exercise Class

In addition,  other village groups such as the First Responders and Horticultural Society use the church at various times during the year.
