Groups through the years

Groups over the years

Over the years, many different groups came and went, and those not directly organised by, or associated with, the church took on a separate life of their own much as they have today.

From 2016 November
2016 December With the installation of the new sound system and big screen a Film Club was launched. The idea came from PCC member Josh Webb, and his family joined forces to offer the full experience, including sales of popcorn, drinks and snacks. There were cushions for hire if the pews prove too uncomfortable! To start, there was to be one film night a month, and the first two were "The Sound of Music" and "It’s A Wonderful Life".
