This all age-service worship, teaching and prayer. Children and young people join us for the first half of the service and then go into their own groups for the second half. After the service we hang out around the bar, drink coffee and eat cake. The services are led by lots of different people in the Bear so every Sunday is different. They are led from the front but we encourage everyone to participate. The services finish around midday but once a month we bring our lunch and eat together. Everyone is welcome.
Children and Young People
Children of all ages (we have quite a lot of them) are involved in the life of The Bear.
During our morning service we run a program for various different age groups

Our youth meet at different times as well, the best way to find out about that is to come along to one of our services
