community activities

At Lavant Churches we aim to be a blessing to the community.

Our activities below are open to everyone whether you are involved in church or not.

All of these activities take place in St Nicholas' church which is widely used for community events.

Toddlers, every Tuesday in school term time, 9 - 11am

For any pre-school children - we have plenty of play equipment including larger items like trikes. Craft activities are also available.
