Junior church update

From September 2018 Junior church will need to drop down to once a month unless we can recruit three more volunteers to support our children's team. Volunteers don't need to lead the children's sessions, we just need additional adults to commit to helping during each of the three current sessions To find out more, please get in touch with the children's team.

First Sunday of the month at 10.30am - informal worship lasting around one hour to engage all ages.

Junior Church
