Monday Drop In

Mondays in Term Time

A great place for families to relax after school, whether your children are 3 or 13, Drop In is a place to come and spend time with each other and other families. There’s always a round of toast to get you through till tea and plenty of activities to take part in!




DOT is a place for more mature members of the community to get together. It has the best homemade cake going and the kettle is always on.


Tuesday 7-11s


Our Tuesday group is a busy club that helps 7-11s relax, build friendships with one another and have a place to call their own. There are huge selections of games and crafts to be part of including pool and Wii. This group is approaching full, so please be in touch to ensure there is space for your child if they want to come along.




Alf is a group for 7-11s who want to explore a bit more about who Jesus is, in a fun and friendly way.


Thursday Drop In


A new drop in for families with young children. A relaxed and informal time to pop in and have a cuppa and play with your children. Each week includes plenty of free play for preschool children, opportunities for parents to support one another, a story and craft to do together and some food. This session is free, but donations are welcome.


Big Kidz


A group for 11-14s at the Hothouse. Big Kidz is a great place for 11-14s to call their own. Young people get to spend time away from school but with their friends in a safe space. The team help create an exciting and varied programme and build relationships with the group which helps them feel valued and listen to.


All Age Service

1st and 3rd Sundays Each Month

If you think church is not for you, then think again! Sundays at the Hothouse are about spending time exploring who God is and what he’s saying to us. It’s designed for families of all shapes and sizes with crafts and play and plenty of noise and movement! There isn’t a need to sit still at this service.
