Our last “Best Foot Forward” Cafe session will be on Wednesday 14th July – in St Helen’s Church from 10:30 to 12:00. No need to book – just turn up! 

The cafe sessions are designed to give you space to reflect and learn from the past year, so we can face the future well. There will also be opportunity to share your experiences of the pandemic with others. Although this is a church-led initiative, we welcome all and will shape the tone of the talk to suit the participants.


The Ark comes to St Peter’s!

Whilst we are unable to run the Ark Toddler group in St Helen’s, we are running it outside at St Peter’s for this half term. Lots of space and no masks outside. Everyone welcome, it’s a very friendly group.
Every Wednesday 9.30-10.30am. Free play followed by singing. Socially-distanced baby only area inside if parents or carers wish.
Numbers are limited. Please email Linda at to book your place, giving the name and age of your children.
