 Sparx is about discovering the Bible and all it has to offer though a series of fun activities - drama, games, stories and craft. Sparx usually finishes at 1130/ 1145am for refreshments.


All Sparx leaders have undergone a DBS check.  Further information can be found about Sparx by clicking on the image above.


Sparx is now fully re-opened after a break from meeting at the church during the pandemic.  Sparx meets every Sunday of the month.  Our youngsters are begining to join in with the start of the service once more.

Special services:


From time to time, we have services which are a little different from the norm, such as All Age Worship & 3 Course Worship. 


We have All Age Worship several times a year, which is a shorter, more interactive service, involving all the congregation - the children do not leave us but take a part in the worship.  Often with dramas, activities, discussions and our live band, it is ideal for families and those new to the church.

All Age Worship (Nativity)-10th December - watch here.  Next AAW - 25th February.


Last but not least, is our 3 Course Worship which starts with a mini traditional service, then a break for refreshments with a variety of workshops, followed by a more modern worship style - the input from the workshops are incorporated into this part of the service.  You can choose which of the 3 "courses" you wish to join, 1 2 or all 3! 


The next 3 Course Worship - to be announced.
