The main Prayer meeting is held in the church on Tuesday evenings to pray for the work of the church, people in need, mission enterprises and other prayer topics as they arise. The format varies. It is normally introduced by one of the Elders or Pastor, with an open time and occasionally breaks into smaller groups. After a period of Covid-related suspension these Tuesday Prayer Meetings have resumed meeting in the church, with arrangements being made to continue concurrent Zoom access for those unable to attend in person.
Supplementary Prayer Times are also held on Wednesday and Friday mornings for half-an-hour from 9 to 9:30am on Zoom (or telephone).
A weekly Zoom Bible Study is held on Thursday Evenings at 7:30pm.
The Bible Study focuses on the structure and content of the Books of the Bible and takes the form of sharing reflections gained from individual reading of the prescribed chapters during the previous week and summarised in a final lesson.
So far, we have covered an overview of the Old and New Testaments and have finished our survey of the Pentateuch. Following a break over Easter we will start the Book of Judges on Thursday 5th May at 7:30 on Zoom. The studies are structured in such a way as to encourage participation– which is becoming a valued aspect of these gatherings – as well as providing a teaching outline.
The Ladies Afternoon Meeting is held on Thursday afternoons from 2 pm to 3:00 pm during the winter months from October to March. Around 30 women meet regularly for fellowship and to hear from guest speakers on their Christian testimony and experience. All women are welcome to The Ladies Afternoon Meeting, young or old, and it is a place of real welcoming and friendship. There is also an annual outing to a local visitor attraction.
A new fortnightly series will commence on Thursday 7th October at 2 pm.

As a new outreach and community involvement activity a series of Drop-In meetings serving tea and coffee with home baking is offered on Wednesday mornings from 10:30am to 12:30pm to encourage informal fellowship and opportunities to welcome folk into the church building and to meet with members.
Other Meetings are convened from time to time with Bible Teaching, Prayer Breakfasts and Exhibitions / Book stalls, etc.
