We welcome all people to our church, wherever you are on your journey of faith. We encourage reflection, question and discussion to help us explore and deepen our Christian faith. We strive to reach the needs of our congregation, the local community and beyond.

Rainbows are aged 5 – 7 years

Rainbows have fun! They take part in indoor and outdoor activities as part of their programme which covers 4 activity areas – look, learn, laugh and love. Our Rainbows enjoy cooking, crafts, games, singing, puppet shows and exploring the out of doors.

Brownies are aged 7 – 10 years

Brownies are divided into Sixes, each with a Sixer and a Second. The Brownie programme covers a range of activities based on You, Community and World. Our Brownies enjoy working on badges and challenges and a wide variety of activities. Favourites include Country theme evenings, crafts, games and activities outside. We arrange several outings during the year-exploring London, a sleepover at the Science Museum and our annual Brownie Holiday.

Guides are aged 10 – 14 years

Guides are divided into mixed aged Patrols, each with a Patrol Leader and Second. The Guides work with a group of friends and plan and carry out a series of activities on a theme for which they are rewarded with a Go For It card. We also work on a variety of challenges and activities as a Unit. Cooking and food related activities are always firm favourites but we also enjoy team building activities and competitions. We enjoy camps and outings and one of the highlights the Big Gig – a Guide only Pop concert.
