Sunday Squad and Sunday Squad Plus
Children and young people have so much to offer and so much to learn as members of our church family. It is our privilege and responsibility to nurture them in the Christian faith in ways that give them confidence to grow as disciples of Christ. We offer 'Sunday Squad' for 3-11 year olds on the 1stand 4th Sundays of the month. Sunday Squad Plus (secondary age) meets for discussion on the 4th Sunday of the month.

Little Fishes is an informal gathering with bible stories, singing, crafts and chatting over tea and biscuits!
