The church has a prayer team which is available to pray with anyone after a service or otherwise by appointment. You may want to give thanks, ask for personal prayer for a situation including healing or pray for someone else. The prayer team is there to be a support to you as we invite God to work.
The mums and toddlers group meets on Mondays (10am) and Wednesdays (9.30am) in term time. If you would like to join the group please turn up on the appropriate day or contact Sue Cotton and you will be made very welcome.
There is a collection point for this in the hall which you are free to use. However, some of the local supermarkets do now provide a direct collection point which we would encourage you to use when you can, as it reduces the volume of items we need to physically take to the main collection point in Cowes.
Various collections are organised by the church in addition to Food Bank referred to above. Milk bottle tops are collected for Dogs for Disabilities, used stamps are collected for the Island Blind Society and Mother's Union collect used greetings cards.
