Each week we have fun with a lively mix of games, crafts, challenges and of course, the tuck shop. We.also take a look at a Bible story or theme, discovering what God says and what we think about it. Among other things we have gone ringoing at Snowtrax, cooked biscuits, made music using junk instruments, and played lots of games!
 
We work towards awards – Mind, Body, Spirit, Community, Creativity – and awards are presented at our annual awards service in July.
 
Adventurers is all about having fun, making friends, enjoying lots of activities and trying new things. If this sounds good, we’d love to see you so come along and let the adventure begin!

We follow the Go Teach material in lively, interactive sessions, where the children get the chance to act, play games, ask questions, pray and learn.

Holiday Club

Once a year during the summer school holidays, we run Holiday Club for children in school years R – 6. It is a week of huge fun, craft-making, puppets, games and Bible stories for kids to enjoy… and the same could be said for the adult helpers too!
 
Each year we have a theme. In the past we’ve had weeks based on “Farmyard Fun”, “Going for Gold” (Athletics), “Space Quest”,  “Saddle Up” (Wild West) and “Jungle Explorers”.
 
We tie the theme to a set of Bible stories told throughout the week and have a special service on the Sunday following where we invite friends and family along to celebrate the week we’ve had together.

Study Groups

Our study groups (known as Community Groups) are an integral part of our church’s life. We’d encourage anyone who’s serious about their faith to join one!
 
Central to these groups is a Bible study, usually leading on from our Sunday morning services. There’s also opportunities to talk, pray and support one another – they’re a great way to get to know a smaller group of people better.
 
Most groups meet on Wednesday or Thursday evenings during term time, except on the first week of the month where we have an all-together prayer gathering called “Prayer Hub” at the Chapel. 
 
We also have two daytime groups available – one for those with younger children and one for seniors called “Y-Cell”.
 
When: Wednesdays and Thursdays during term time
Time: Varies depending on group

You can always be sure of a warm welcome to this friendly and supportive group of people.
 
When: 3rd Wednesday of the month Time: 10.30am – 12.30pm

Parents’ Cafe

Located in the original part of the Chapel, our Parent’s Café runs during the time that our Badgers group is happening on a Thursday.
