This Sunday there are gatherings at 9.30 and 11am, and then our 2 new Alpha courses begin the following week. For more details check out the website pages or Facebook.

The Nativity tomorrow morning is going to be fabulous – angel and shepherd costumes provided, plus video, craft and a Christmas tree decoration for every child. It lasts just 45 minutes, followed by festive refreshments. Get there early for a good seat and to get your costume on!
Family Church Advent kicked off with a craft afternoon attended by over 160 people! The afternoon was a fantastic time for families in our community – the wreath making and paper cup advent calendar were particularly popular. Over 100 families are now taking part in Advent challenges and activities every day in the run up to Christmas. You can check out all the fun that people are having on our new facebook page, and join in the advent adventure with us: www.facebook.com/familychurchstthomascrookes

It’s 9.30am on a Sunday morning and 100 people (half of them under 7) are busy making microphones using tin foil, polystyrene balls, and cocktail sticks! Then there is a story, singing, amazing dancing and a great talk about being brave – where everyone gets to shout into their microphones really loudly. And after all this we eat biscuits and pastries and chat to all our friends. Come along to First Steps at the 9.30am gathering – it lasts just 45 minutes and is a great way to do church as a family.
