All-Age Services are usually held at 9.00am till 10-15am, every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month, throughout the year. We begin with refreshments and music. So you can have breakfast here in the church if the start time might be a little early for you.

Please join the musicians at the start bringing your voice or your instrument. All are welcome to participate in any way that you can.

These services are designed to be All-Age friendly, with participation in a variety of responses to the bible readings. Every 4th service will concentrate on being a Communion service- with no breakout for responses.

Anyone who would like to help with the All-Age Services speak to Ann Toner – Co-ordinator, or Janice Aiton – Rector.
