An activity-based event taking place once a month at St Mary’s – usually in the hall, sometimes in church.
For families of all ages 9 days to 99 years.
Come and have fun with us, meet some new people and learn a bit about the Christian faith.
We start at 11.00am, generally on the third Saturday of the month, with welcome and activities based around a Biblical theme.
At about 12.10 we have a short story, prayer and praise session, and then at 12.30 we have a light lunch together, finishing at 1.00pm.
You don’t have to be a regular church attender to join us.
We’d love to see you again!
