“THE LITTLE PEOPLE” - Activities for 5-year olds and younger
         

Toddle-In
Toddle-In is our Mother and Toddler group on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 10:00am to11:30am. It is a time for games and stories for the children and a chat and cup of tea for mums and carers. This is a very popular event with dozens of mums (and grannies and others) participating with their little charges.
Bedtime Stories
This is on the third Sunday of each month from 5pm-6pm in the church hall. It is for children (approx) aged 1-7, though there is no upper age limit. There are stories and singing, followed by hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows. Come in your PJs or onesie, bring your teddy bear or snuggle blanket.
Crèche
This is for children below school age from 10.05am to 10.45am (approx) on Sundays. There is gentle care for babies and lots of toys and activities for the older ones. We aim to provide a safe, loving and fun environment where children feel valued and accepted, and where they are encouraged to build friendships.Crèche is the foundation for youth work at Ford's Lane. Firm foundations are laid here as children are prayed for, surrounded with worship and taught simple truths of Scripture

“THE NOISY PEOPLE” – Activities for 5-18 year olds


Sunday Club
Our senior Sunday Club groups meet from 10.05am until 10.45am (approx) on Sundays. They are for children in school years 3-6. Through activities and good Bible teaching, based on "Gospel Story Curriculum" materials produced by the Good Book Company, we aim to help the children grow in FAITH through FUN and FRIENDSHIP with Jesus, with each other and with the church.

Loft and YF
Sunday mornings – 10.05am -11.00am. Groups for young people of secondary school and college age – a great time to get stuck into God's word with prayer and discussions. They also use"Gospel Story Curriculum" materials tailored for the older age group.

“THE QUIETER PEOPLE” - Activities for Adults
            

• Prayer Meetings:  Mondays at 9.30am in the Church Hall.
 
• Over 60s Lunch Club :  on the second and fourth Mondays each month at 12.30pm. We meet, in the Church Hall or in someone’s home, to have lunch, chat, sing and enjoy a short talk/activity afterwards. Transport to and from the venue is provided. See This Week for specific dates.
 
• The Banner Group: meets informally to make banners, which are displayed in the Church.
 
• The Flower Rota:  ladies take it in turn to produce a flower arrangement for the front of the Church and sometimes in the foyer.
 
• Housegroups:  there are four groups which meet in people's homes to study the Bible, pray and enjoy each other's company. One meets on a Tuesday at 8pm and the rest on a Wednesday at 8pm. One of the Wednesday groups is trialling a 2.30pm start in the dark winter months. All groups meet twice a month, usually the second and fourth weeks.
 
• Prayer Team:  After our morning and evening services, people make themselves available for anyone who might wish to talk, listen and pray with them individually.
           
• Music Group:  a group of musicians and singers meet on alternate Wednesdays at 8.00pm to practise, and help to lead worship on Sundays and other times.

• Men's Curry Evenings: these take place at irregular intervals, but are great opportunities for men to get together, enjoy a good meal, and listen to a short talk over coffee.

• MOP - Men of Praise: meets on the first Tuesday of each month from 7.30-9.30pm. This is a time for men to meet and praise God. Venues have included Costa Coffee, but at present is meeting in local churches.

 


“THE 'CHURCH FAMILY' PEOPLE” – Activities for the whole church
                  
There are occasions when our church family meets together as a whole.

           
The Nine Forty-Five Service – the first 20 minutes of this is a time for everyone to worship God together and is consciously made “child-friendly”, whilst keeping in mind the adults present.

          
All Age Services and Brunches – occasionally speakers are invited who have the special God-given ability to engage an audience of all ages. Brunches are informal and a great opportunity to come along with friends and family for wonderful food, a short talk and time to chat.

                 
Communion Lunches – We occasionally meet to celebrate Communion together as a church family, and then share a simple meal and fellowship.

            
Church Weekends Away – the last one was 3rd-5th July 2015 at Cloverley Hall. These are great times to relax together, learn more about God and about each other.

                     
Summer BBQs and special celebrations – When the sun shines, church members offer their home venues for BBQs. Other events have been bookstalls, ceilidhs, musical concerts, garden parties and cake stalls.
