Before Covid-19 we used to meet in the Red Room at church from 10.30am until 12.00 noon on the second Saturday each month to share practical skills, make progress with a current project, chat and share refreshments and fellowship. When we're able to restart why not drop in for coffee and a chat? At Christmas 2019, we held a Craft Fayre, selling items hand made by church members, to raise funds for projects closely associated with the mission work of the church - for example the "Feed my Sheep" initiative, providing lunch for those who eat alone.
Keep checking to find out when we're able to meet again on a Tuesday morning...
We are a group of children and young people aged from 3 to 18. We meet every Sunday morning from 10.30am – 11.45am. We enjoy food, fun and fellowship through a range of bible based activities. At the end of the session we join with the congregation in church and share what we have been doing. KYC is often involved in leading, or helping to plan worship on a Sunday morning.
As part of our mission work we sponsor a boy in Ghana. His name is Isaac and we correspond regularly with him. We also collect clothes for the homeless and initiated a project called “Feed my Sheep”, which provides a meal and company for people who regularly eat alone.

ItL is a worship group which every fortnight led the first part of Sunday morning worship from 10:00am. In October 2020 we're restarting "safe spaced" band practice on a Friday evening in preparation for the time when we're able to take an active part in Sunday morning services again. Practice starts at 6:30pm.
Drums & Piano at the front of Church
Before Covid-19 we enjoyed singing contemporary songs, accompanied by piano, cornet, electric guitars and drumkit. The musicians often played throughout the morning service and the group occasionally planned and led the whole service. As part of our mission work we continue to sponsor a child in Africa. His name is Marcel and we correspond regularly with him.

We are a Church run Playgroup that has been in existence for over 50 years. We've changed a lot over the years and now are a Pre-Nursery Group for children aged from 2-3yrs. We are registered with OFSTED for 36 children and offer funded places for eligible two and three year olds prior to them leaving to go to one of the seven School Nurseries in the area.
We are open Monday, Wednesday and Fridays during Term Time from 9.15 – 11.45am and the same children attend each session. The children are in two Groups – Panda and Zebra – and we have the use of two rooms, a large hall and a smaller quieter room and the groups change rooms after snack time to enable the children to experience all the activities on offer. The children work towards the Early Years Foundation Stage goals and staff monitor their progress through Observations, Next Steps and the Learning Journeys.
It is our aim to be a caring, happy and friendly group where each child will make friends, develop their social skills and learn to be part of a group. To achieve this we plan a wide range of activities and special events for the children to enjoy during their time with us and provide an environment which is safe and stimulating in which they can achieve their goals. Our partnership with parents is very important to us and we offer them the opportunity to take an active part in their child’s time with us. Our key person system ensures that each child has their needs met and enables us to make sure each child is supported in all areas of their development.
All Staff regularly access training via Early Years Dudley to update their knowledge by attending relevant courses. We are committed to Safeguard all children in our care and all the staff regularly update their Enhanced Disclosure from DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service). Staff are encouraged to look for new ideas to make each child’s time with us a very happy one where they progress, grow in confidence and are ready to go on to School Nursery or Pre-School.
Inspected by OFSTED, the quality of the provision is Good.
You are welcome to come and look around. Please just ring the doorbell on the car park entrance door, or contact the Playgroup for more information.
