There are a
number of activities taking place at the Church – please feel free to join us,
or contact us for further
Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box Evening
Each year several hundred
shoeboxes have been sent from the Free Church to children who would otherwise
not receive a Christmas Present. Each November, we hold a shoe box evening,
when people from the village are invited to the church hall to bring completed
boxes, and to help assemble boxes from donated gifts.
Two of our church members
performed in The Ghost Train in November 2008. This amateur production was organised by
Churches Together in Stansted.
Imagine sinking into a comfy sofa or armchair, sipping a
free cup of Fairtrade ground coffee…. The Place
on the Hill offers
this and more …. a selection of teas,
soft drinks, light refreshments, fresh fruit, good company, WiFi
internet, computers, a place to ‘chill out’ and escape the telephone, somewhere
for the kids to play, books to read and borrow. Come to the newly refurbished
foyer of the Free Church, every Monday (not Bank Holidays), Wednesday and
Friday from 9.30am – 12.30pm.
Some days we have
Painting for All led by local artist Arthur Law – come and try your hand at
drawing and painting. All welcome.
For more details please contact the Free Church Team on firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to
New Directions in Worship
The morning service on the first
Sunday on alternate months is much more informal than our usual services, and
is particularly aimed at those who would like a change from, or do not feel
very comfortable in, a formal service.
The service is participative, and is suitable for all ages.
Like St John’s C of E Church in
Stansted, we have links with the mission, which serves the London ‘street
people’. St John’s Church, which is open
daily during daylight hours, has a collection point at the back of the church.
Please do not bring items to the Free Church.
For more details of the mission please click here.
Shalom is an ecumenical
group which meets fortnightly on Monday evenings. There is a varied programme of religious and
secular evenings, some led by members of the group and some led by outside
speakers. For dates, please see Other
