Fellowship & Friendship

We value the opportunity to share fellowship with one another, and provide many different regular opportunities for individuals to get together to build friendships in a variety of different environments. These are a great way to meet different people within the life of the church, and many find these groups are an easy way to get more involved.


Each group and activity is open to new members, and offer a great way of inviting new friends along to experience more of the fellowship and love which is at the heart the gospel message.

Shuttlecock Badminton  Senior Badminton meet in the back hall on Mondays from 8-10pm, with Ladies meeting on Wednesdays from 1.30-3pm.
  Indoor Bowling  A group of 12 to 15 people meet on Tuesday Afternoons during winter months for short mat indoor bowls (not to be confused with carpet bowls). This is a fun filled afternoon 2PM to 4PM with a tea break half way.  No previous knowledge is needed as members soon pick up the rudiments with plenty of help from the more seasoned members. 
 

Art Group  The Art Group meets every Monday during term times in the main hall of the Church Centre from 1.45pm-3.45pm.
