This takes the form of a morning event in the church hall to celebrate Easter, a Summer week covering a variety of biblical themes and another morning session, usually in early December to reflect on the Christmas story. In addition to this an infant programme is organised for preschool children to run simultaneously in the Institute for the Summer week only. These events are extremely well attended with up to 40 young children ably supported by many adult volunteers but also a group of five teenagers, whose help and fellowship are enjoyed and appreciated by both the adults and children alike. The ministers from both churches take an active part in the activities and join eagerly in the fun.
