From big community events, such as the Christmas Bazaar, the Drama Group Pantomime every February, or the Big Lunch picnic each June, to smaller events such as Barn Dances, Curry ‘n Quiz nights, the Harvest Supper or Tabletop sales, and of course not forgetting one-off events like the Queen’s Jubilee… all these things involve those much wider than the church worship community.
Our Over 50s Club is for fun, friendship and things to do and places to go, for anyone 50+. Toddler Group is similar – anyone who needs a break and some different toys and a change of scene can come along! We also have a cricket team, in season!
See our range of activities on in our church halls here (please note youth club no longer running): Halls activities poster
We also have people you can talk to if you need a friend, or just a listening ear. We’re strongest at this at the moment with those suffering bereavement, but we will be there for anyone – just contact us.
There is one infant school in the parish, Exhall Cedars: http://www.exhallcedars.org/, one junior school, St Giles’: http://www.stgilesjunior.org.uk/ , two combined primary and junior, Goodyers End: http://www.goodyersend.warwickshire.sch.uk/ and Wheelwright Lane: http://www.wheelwrightlane.warwickshire.sch.uk/ , and one secondary school, Ash Green Academy: http://www.ashgreenschool.org.uk/ . There are also two special schools, Exhall Grange: http://www.exhallgrange.org.uk/ and RNIB Pears Centre www.rnib.org.uk/Pears_Centre.
We make regular visits to many of them and nearly all of them come to the church for various year-group activities, a swell as whole school worship at Christmas, which we always welcome.
