Our Church Community
Here for everyone
These groups are the basic building blocks of church life and express the diversity of God’s family. They differ in style, focus and pattern of meeting, however they all hold common values of building friendship, sharing the ups and downs of life, and helping, encouraging and strengthening one another as we practically outwork our faith every day.
If you have any questions about Community Groups then please contact us below and one of our team will be in touch.
Mothers’ Union is a Christian organisation working with people of all faiths and none, to promote family life, both in the UK and Worldwide. Members are not all mothers, or even all women. They may be single, married, parents, grandparents, or young adults. At Claines we have a lively and dedicated branch, giving their time and energy to working on local Mothers’ Union projects and fundraising. We participate in all aspects of church life and enjoy each other’s fellowship.
We meet on the second Wednesday of the month and we warmly welcome all newcomers.
