As well as opportunities for worship we have a few regular groups which meet as part of our church life.
Springfield Wednesday Café
A drop-in-café is held on a Wednesday of each week from 10.30am to 12 noon in Springfield Community Church. Tea, coffee, biscuits, home baking and music are on the menu. It is a lovely, relaxed café with lots of companionship and laughter so do come along and join us. Everyone is welcome!
At the end of the Summer term, the youth club members planted up a pallet garden for display outside Ceres Church. The sun and rain has kept it looking beautiful over the summer break. Can you see what they intended it to represent?
The Youth Club was set up in July 2013. Its purpose is to be a safe place for young people from the village and surrounding area to meet and spend time together, playing games, doing craft, having discussions, enjoying snacks, making smoothies, toasties etc and organising charity fundraising projects.
We are in the process of advertising for a new Youth Leader. The club will start up again when this position has been filled. We hope this will be in the not too distant future. Watch this space!
Sadly, CKS Messy Church is in abeyance at present. We are hoping to employ a new Children’s worker in the next few months and are looking forward to developing our children’s ministry. This may be a Messy Church or some other form of worship activity. If you are interested in becoming a CKS Youth and Children’s Sessional Worker please check the Home page for more information. Thank you.
Messy Church is a world-wide movement, renewing and reinventing what church means in the 21st Century.
Messy Church is for all ages and is great way for families to worship together. It is all about fun, food and fellowship. We usually meet on the 3rd Sunday of the month in Springfield Community Church from 4.00pm until 6.00pm.
Each session has a Bible related theme. There are a variety of imaginative activities and games based on the theme. The celebration, or worship time, includes a simplified Bible reading, singing, a prayer and a reflection which may be a puppet show, drama or story. After this we have a meal together and a good chat.
The prayer group meets weekly on Mondays when we bring before God the needs of our parish, our communities and our world. The group now meets fortnightly in person at 10.30am (10.00am for Springfield) in each church in a rotation. On the alternate Mondays, the group meets at 4.00pm on Zoom. A calendar of meetings (September to December 2023) is available here.
At present we have 14 members, half attending the meetings in person and the rest supporting from home. Members are updated throughout the month with any prayer requests which have been made.
Prayer plays a vital part in the ministry of our church and we are blessed with a dedicated and enthusiastic group of people. You are most welcome to join us.

Pastoral Care Group
The congregation sees itself as a close-knit community, which takes an interest in the welfare of our community. Members of the group visit and keep in contact with the most vulnerable in the parish.
Bowls & Blether
Bowls & Blether takes place on a Friday afternoon, year round, between 1.30pm and 3.30pm in Kemback Hall. There's good parking in the car park opposite the hall. All are welcome to come along to hone their carpet bowls skills while enjoying the company and chat.
