You are welcome to join in with as much as you want to. At the end of the service we have a meal together in the hall. Please do join us— there’s always plenty to go round. Afterwards in term time is the Training Field for students. Children are an important part of our church family, and if you have children with you today, then be assured that we are used to noise(!).
