Church Social Events
A number of events are organised, for fellowship, fun and fund-raising!
These include the annual Summer Fete, the Family Bonfire & Fireworks and the Christmas Bazaar. In addition there have been Scarecrow trails, Easter Egg Hunts, Harvest Auctions, the occasional Quiz and Meals organised and while fund-raising has been the aim, having some fun and having a chance to get to know people better has been a bonus.
