We are a lively, friendly evangelical church at the heart of the village of Aldham. We are the only church in the village and we wear our Anglicanism lightly. All are welcome to our worship and into our fellowship.

Developments in 2006 of the West Tower - a kitchen, a disabled toilet and a screened room above for Junior Church - have made the building more useful for both church and village use.

Junior Church is normally held at the Communion service on the fourth Sunday of the month.

We try to keep the wider world's needs in our minds and in our giving. In 2010 the church raised and gave about £4,255 to Christian and welfare causes outside the village. In 2015 it raised £2,457 for a church in Katmandu stricken by the earthquake, and £2,068 for the Alzheimer's Society. We suppport the local Food Bank and Beacon House, a Christian Charity that offers healthcare and wellbeing facilities to those who are homeless.
