Lent for Children and Families
Why not use these sheets at home to think about God’s wonderful world this Lent? A sheet for each week available every Sunday, or download and print them here.



Do you enjoy talking about books you might read or have read, then the following group might suit you.

On the fourth Monday of each month at 9.45am until 11.15am at Coffee in the Chancel, you are invited to join others over a cup of coffee to chat and share your reading experiences. This will be fairly informal and you can drop in and out as you wish.

The first occasion will be on Monday 27th February and fourth Mondays thereafter.
We look forward to seeing you there.
