Our Church Community

Church life ranges from Sunday services, through small group meetings to personal spiritual disciplines such as prayer and Bible study.

Sunday Worship

“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”

We hold a variety of services throughout the month and would love you to join us for any or all of them.

Faith Groups

“Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.”

Romans 15:7

Welcoming, relevant, friendly, encouraging, informal and inclusive – something for everyone.

Community Groups

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours”.

Mark 11:24

 We are involved in a number of community initiatives, working as Christ in our community.

Life Events

As a Church of England Parish, it is a great privilege to be involved in supporting families through important life events, whether the start of a new marriage, the baptism of an infant, committing your life to Jesus Christ through confirmation, or the death of a loved one.
