Ever wanted to try your hand at ringing the church bells? We are a small but talented team of bell ringers who can show you the ropes. We meet for practice every Thursday evening at St Martin's at 7pm. Please introduce yourself at any of the regular services and ask for the Tower Captain or any of the regular team. You will be most welcome and pointed in the right direction!

PASTORAL VISITING SCHEME - click here for our leaflet "Pastoral Care..."

A number of members of our congregation form a team of visitors who are available to spend a little time with those in our community who need such support.

At the moment, those who are visited tend to be elderly folk who, for a variety of reasons, can no longer attend church, but who value the link which the visiting team provides. We are also available to anyone, whether a member/former member of the church or not, who requests a visit.

Home Communions are arranged on request, and in addition, four times a year we bring together, those who wish to take Communion in a group service. This is held in the small cottage adjacent to the church, and is followed by tea and home-made cakes, and is regarded as a highlight by many.

Anyone wishing to arrange a visit should contact Mrs. Orena James on 016977 2636.
