CELEBRATING 180 YEARS OF MISSION THIS YEAR!
Find out how we celebrated the 180th Anniversary of the Building and Opening of our Chapel HERE! On Saturday 4th May we had our Anniversary Coffee Morning and, on Sunday 5th May our special Anniversary Services. We had a special Guest Speaker, Deacon Stephen Roe, who served as a Lay Worker in our Circuit from 1999 to 2004, based with us at Old Newton. We have fond memories of the time he and his family spent among us.
This 19th Century Church with its refurbished and contemporary designed sanctuary is the centre for a lively, active and welcoming Christian community of around 45 adults plus children.

The adjoining hall acts as a focus for a wide range of activities in which the church serves the village community. On the first, third and fifth Tuesdays in the month there is a well attended ‘Pause for Prayer’ session at 10.15am followed by a Coffee Morning. On the first Tuesday of the month there is a lunch from 12.15 to 1.30pm.
Bible Study courses are held during Lent and at other times of the year. On occasional Friday evenings the church hosts and serves a meal. The atmosphere is warm, intimate and there is always a post-dinner speech or presentation. Other social events such as Quizzes, Barbecues and Strawberry Teas give more oppurtunity for outreach as well as fundraising.
