This group meets several times a year to develop and prepare ideas for using art in enhancing our worship.

There are major displays that enhance the Sanctuary at festivals such as Easter, Harvest and Christmas.

The Church actively supports overseas aid

Christian Aid, the church's own charity, aims to enable the most deprived people in the developing regions of our world to work towards improving their own circumstances. Financial support of local overseas organisations working in partnership with Christian Aid ensures that those who know the problems first-hand can work towards producing the solutions.

Christian Aid also provides practical emergency disaster relief throughout the world in co-operation with other charities and in our Church we have a 'hands-on' reaction whenever it is required.

Our congregation is kept fully aware of Christian Aid's many and varied fund-raising activities including local house-to-house collections, the Annual Fair and year-round availability of donation boxes. All these are generously supported.

House Groups
Several groups meeting at various times to suit different needs

House Groups are an integral part of the life of our Congregation. They provide an opportunity to meet other Christians in a relaxed atmosphere and to develop friendships. Bible passages are explored with everyone contributing their thoughts. Fears, joys and hurt can be safely shared. It is a place for food, laughter and mutual support, where people can come along and just be, secure in the knowledge that they are accepted just as they are.

Contact the Minister for further information.

Prayer Chain

The Prayer Chain operates on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and evenings. Around 30 people take part and requests are passed from one person to another by telephone along the 'chain' or by e-mail as appropriate. Individuals in the chain then pray about the requests in their own time. Prayer requests come from the Minister, Prayer Chain members and anyone in the congregation. Messages can also be left in the Prayer box at the back of the Church. We pray for the sick, for people having operations, for people in trouble, and for world issues. Always there is a strong emphasis on confidentiality.

Prayers are phoned and e-mailed on Tuesdays and Thursdays along with God-given answers to prayers.

Traidcraft


Visit the Traidcraft Stall every Sunday. We are pleased to be a Fairtrade Accredited church.

In the Coffee Bar, after every Sunday Morning Service, there is a Traidcraft Stall. Here everyone is encouraged to purchase goods from the developing world, which have been produced under humanitarian conditions and sold at prices which will adequately reward the producers.

Pressure by Traidcraft and others has also resulted in such fair traded goods now becoming more widely available in our local shops.
