Church Walks

Church Walks

Our Church Walks take place on the 1st Sunday of each month.  These walks are a great way to get to know each other, and are open to all ages.

Our walks depart promptly from the meeting place at 2.30pm.  Any cancellations or changes will be announced during the morning service on the day.

Please wear suitable footwear and clothing appropriate for the weather.  Bring your own snacks/drinks if needed and please note that everyone will be responsible for themselves and their children

All walks are child-friendly and some are buggy-friendly – please see the descriptions.  Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome too.

There’s no need to book but if you have any questions please get in touch by sending a ‘General Enquiry’ through our Contact page.

We look forward to seeing you!

In July and August - join us instead for our Summer Picnics!
