Church Celebrates 80 years!

1935 - 2015

On Sunday 29th November we celebrated the 80th birthday of our church.
The current congregation were pleased to welcome back many who had been associated with the church over the years.
In particular we rejoiced that one member, Gwen Jackson, who was at its inception, was able to be present.

After the service led by our minister Rev John Amankwatia over 100 people sat down for a celebration lunch followed by "afternoon entertainment"


Activities for Adults

OUTLOOK: is the name of a new group that has been started at our church. We meet on the third Tuesday of each month to look at topics of concern to us as Christians and explore wider aspects of the Christian and other faiths.
We plan to have discussions based on books, studies, articles, DVDs etc. Visiting speakers will be invited and visits made to relevant places, plays, exhibitions etc. Some purely social activities will also be included. The activities of the group will be determined by its members.

Pilates:  Pilates is a gentle form of exercise intended to increase strength, flexibility, posture, and body-awareness.  The church holds two one-hour classes each Thursday morning in term-time (at 9.45 am and 10.50 am), led by a qualified teacher.  Classes are £4.50 per session, payable half-termly in advance.  For details contact:

Open House: Open House offers a social afternoon for people of all ages, although it mostly consists of retired people.  Activities include chatting over tea and home-made cakes, occasional outings and special events.  Open House takes place on Tuesday afternoons (2.00 pm – 4.00 pm). There is no charge, although a donation of 50p towards the cost of refreshments is suggested.  It may be possible to provide transport.  For further details contact: 01737 812294.

Drivers: This is a social group for adults of all ages, meeting in the afternoon on the third Monday of each month between September and June.  Meetings begin at either 1.30 pm or 2.00 pm depending on the activity.  The programme includes speakers, an in-house meal, quiz and games evenings and a meal out in a country pub.  The annual membership fee is nominal, although members may sometimes be asked for voluntary contributions to charitable causes in connection with particular speakers.  For more information contact :0208 660 8398.

Badminton Group:  This is a non-competitive social badminton club, which runs all year round (with a few exceptions). We have a mix of ages from youth to retirement, and play socially for fun. We take existing players but also encourage anyone wishing to take up the sport to come along and have a go. We use feather shuttlecocks and will provide basic coaching of the game.
Our Winter fees are £20 adults and £10 for Youth from October to April inclusive. The Summer season is pay-as-you-play at £1 for adults and 50p for youth per session.
