Serving Groups

Sunday Coffee Rota

Coffee is served after all our morning services and before Stepping Stones Service. A great way to get to know people is to join the team that serves coffee/tea/juice/biscuits on these occasions.

Sunday Lunch

Every Sunday we provide a free meal for all those who are hungry or in need. - we need volunteers who are prepared to cook either a beef or a chicken casserole in a slow cooker (provided) or prepare a pudding to be delivered to St Peter's Church at 8:45 am or 12:15 pm still hot. All ingredients will be paid for. Our aim is to have enough volunteers so that no one needs to cook more than once every two months.
