Open Wednesday Organ Sessions
Every Wednesday morning from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. we open the church doors to hold an informal morning of tea, coffee and conversation.
Every week we organise a different activity and every third Wednesday of the month we hold an Organ Session on our 1877 Henry Willis organ.
