Our church wouldn’t be ‘family’ if we only met on Sunday mornings. In fact we have so much going on during the week it’s hard to include everything. However, below is a snapshot of some of the people and groups which make up our family. For more infomation on one-off events click on 'Events' above.
Sunday Club meet in the Church Hall each Sunday in term time drop-off from 9.20am
Fr Mike regularly attends both schools to take assemblies, lead worship, and to be involved in classes. Twice a year our Sunday services include a focus on our schools. Our Education Sunday services are led by the St George's School Ethos Group, and our Back2School services allow us to pray for the children at our two schools, and especially for those who are just joining us. In addition, St George’s School also hold their Easter and Christmas services in church; each class will visit the Wednesday service at least once a year; and St Michael's hold their Easter service in our church.
Regular Church attendance is a criteria for admission to both schools. If you wish to register your attendance to be used for a school application please request a Church Attendance Card from one of the Church Wardens. You will need to contact the school directly for detailed information about their admissions criteria.
