...but you can look on the Calendar to find out which week is which!
This is how it goes:
PLEASE NOTE - Summer 2020
During the ongoing pandemic situation, our church gatherings are now happening again, but in 'mini-kilns' of up to six people and outside, as per the government guidelines.
Our next Celebration isn't until October, so we're waiting to see what the social distancing rules will be at that time.
'Gather' is currently not meeting because the Sunshine Club has not yet been reopened by the local council.
'Taste' is meeting at varying times of the week in mini Family Kilns.
If you'd like to come to a gathering, please see the calendar and contact us for current locations.
Roughly 3-4 times a year. A space for the whole church to come together in one place from all the different Kilns. A time of gathered worship for everyone of all ages, celebrating all that God has been doing in and through our community since the previous Celebration. Refreshments afterwards. Children under age 11 should be accompanied by an adult; youth age 11-17 may attend alone with parent / guardian permission.

A simple Sunday worship service in an informal setting. Come and get real with God without getting bored. Worship from the heart, and straight talking about life, God and everything in between. Anyone is welcome to join us – from 0 to 100. There will often be children present (and they are very welcome); however, there is no specific, separate provision for children. There is a children's activities table available, instruments available for musical worship time, and we always seek to involve the youth and children in age appropriate ways according to their unique needs.
Designed primarily for families with primary school aged children in mind, with very hands-on learning and worship. Most weeks there’s also food to share.
Simple house church gatherings of roughly 10-15 people committed to seeking the Lord together in prayer, Bible study, breaking bread and fellowship. Encouraging each other to seek the Lord's direction in our daily lives all week long.
We take the protection and safety of children and vulnerable adults very seriously. All Volunteers in the church who work directly with children, youth or vulnerable adults are checked with the national Disclosure and Barring Service.
