This autumn, we're restarting a regular Church Prayer Night.

The first is on Monday 8th October and the next on Monday 5th November.  They're both taking place at St Martin’s between 7.45 p.m. and 9.15 p.m. and everyone is welcome. Please get the dates in your diary, and come along

Our Family Light Party - Celebrate Light, Celebrate Life - takes place on Wednesday 31st October, 4.00 - 6.00 in the Parish Hall, with games, activities, food and fun for all the family. This free event celebrates Jesus, the Light of the World and focuses on 'treats' not 'tricks', 'light' not 'darkness'.  Everyone is welcome. There's no need to book. Just turn up on the day. If you need further information, you can contact us here.

Who Let The Dads Out? is a group for Dads, Stepdads, Granddads and other male carers, where they can spend quality time with their toddlers and pre-school children.

Meet other Dads; give Mum some valuable time off; drink tea or coffee and have a bacon roll; do a craft activity with your child; or just play with the toys.

The next session is on Saturday 13th October - 8.30-10.30 a.m. in the Parish Church Lounge - and continuing to meet monthly on the 2nd Saturday of each month at the same time.

You can contact Simon Fenn for further information, or just turn up on the day.

We look forward to seeing you!

Take-a-Break, Take-a-Break Too and Baby Playtime are our groups for pre-school children with their parents and carers. Baby Playtime takes place on Mondays, 10.00-11.30 at St Martin's (following on from Light Break Café), Take-a-Break meets on Tuesdays, 10.00 - 11.30 in the Parish Hall, and Take-a-Break Too is held at St Martin's on Thursdays, also between 10.00 and 11.30. All three groups meet during term-time only. Everyone is welcome and we look forward to welcoming you. You can contact us if you need any further information about Baby Playtime, Take-a-Break or Take-a-Break Too.

We run Holiday Club style events during each half-term holiday week.

The next one is on Thursday 25th October between 10.00 a.m. and 12.00 noon at St Martin's in Mill Road.

This is a free event, and children up to the age of eleven, their parents and carers are all welcome. Children under five will need an adult to stay with them.  Please contact us for further details.

Work to refurbish the kitchen at the Parish Hall is taking place from mid-October, so there is no activity day there during half-term.  Look out instead, for details of our Family Light Party that is taking place inthe Parish Hall on Wednesday 31st October between 4.00 and 6.00 p.m.
