3rd Sunday - #AllTogetherAt11
This is a service for everyone to enjoy together on the 3rd Sunday of the month. Fun, interactive and inclusive. We enjoy singing (often action songs), a short talk and an interactive time with zones for those who like to be busy, reflective, colourful, chatty or to read.
We are currently full so can't accept any new families at the moment, if you would like to join the waiting list please sign up below. If you normally come along and have not had a message about the new booking arrangements please email email@example.com
Our toddler group for 0-4s and their parents/carers. 9:30-11am on Wednesdays in the church centre during term time. We are a fun and friendly group with parent supervised play including sensory/messy play, snacks and drinks for adults and children and finish with a singing time. There is no charge for the group but we suggest a donation of £2 per family per week.

We want BFPC Youth to be a safe space for young people to grow in their faith, learn more about Jesus, and encounter the love and power of God. It’s also a place to build friendships and community in order to encourage one another in our daily lives and journey of faith. We are passionate about young people feeling part of the family and knowing they are loved and valued.
We currently meet on the third Sunday of the month, 6-8pm to eat, have fun and explore together faith in Jesus. For more details email firstname.lastname@example.org
Meeting weekly to play snooker at the local Blandford Forum Snooker Club. There are two full sized tables plus a pool table, so several people can play at the same time. We currently meet up on a Monday afternoon and we welcome everyone/ all standards - honestly, you should watch us play! The club is located in a hall off the URC church in Salisbury Street; Contact Dave Griffiths at email@example.com for more details.
