Women's Fellowship - Thursday Afternoon

Are you looking for friendship and an opportunity to hear an interesting speaker?  This can be found at our Thursday afternoon meeting where you will usually find around 35 ladies, some from churches of other denominations, all enjoying each other's company and a cup of tea and biscuit to finish their time together.

The varied programme includes the occasional meal out, an annual cream tea, a summer outing and fund raising for various charities.

Those members who are no longer able to get to meetings are not forgotten and receive a visit from time to time.

Meetings start at 2.30pm and are normally held in the Sharland Hall.

Worship Band

Our small band of musicians often supports the organist or pianist during morning worship. We are increasingly involved in family services and in accompanying the singing group which has grown out of our activities with young families. We would welcome new members, regardless of age, ability or musical instrument.
