Join us as one of the Safari Sparks as we go on an adventure deep into the heart of God's word. Accompanied by Helenephant the Elephant and Heidina the Hyena, the odd-jobs animals (sometimes very odd!) we explore the stories found in the Book of Daniel.  Guided by William Snakespeare and the Park ranger Sue Vannah, we will see how these stories still apply to our lives today.

Grow - Equipping You to be an Effective Discipler of Children

Grow is a forum to explore aspects of raising children as Disciples of Christ, held termly, and is for everyone who feels passionately about being involved in raising Godly children in our community – parents, grand parents, God parents and children’s workers. The session material is repeated – once on a Tuesday morning, and once on a Tuesday evening.  
 Each meeting will have a major theme for discussion, a section on celebrating festivals with the children in your life, and some resources available for you to browse.
