Welcome Packs

In the front vestibule underneath the welcome stand you will find white paper bags.  These are filled with what we think any new person may find interesting.  The bags are divided into single and family packs.  These are packed slightly differently and the family packs have ‘Family’ written on the bag.  Whilst the Welcome Team will primarily give these bags out, please do not feel you cannot give them out also.  Sometimes the Welcome Team are talking to someone and may miss a newcomer, if you see this please do approach that person and give them a bag if you deem it appropriate. 

Many thanks

Money Box

There is a safe box on the wall behind the desk in reception. If you have any money to hand in to the church, please put it in the box and do not leave it on the reception desk. Many thanks.


If you are new to the church on a Sunday, please do avail yourself of our welcome point in the front entrance, where you will find someone who will be delighted to meet with you and explain who we are and what we do.  

If you have children and are not sure where they go for their groups, please again, go to the Welcome Point in the entrance where someone from the Family Ministry Team will be happy to help.
