Regular Events and Services

Coffee, Cake and Conversation

Stop in for a coffee, homemade cake and some friendly chat in the Schoolroom. There’s always a sympathetic listening ear, whatever your problems. Every Friday from 11.00am-12.30pm. You are most welcome to stay for the service afterwards.


Loving God, you know us and all that we are facing.

We thank you that we can come to you as we are – with all our fears and concerns, our difficulties and challenges.

Please draw close to each of us and those we remember before you now.

Bring to us your peace and comfort.

And fill us with your Spirit that we may be bearers of your grace and hope to others.

As a country protect us, encourage us and keep us. In the name of your Son Jesus we pray. Amen.
