We are a church in the middle of the Anglican tradition that tries
to merge the modern with the traditional. For example, we have
started to use a digital projector to make it easier for visitors to
follow the services without having to find their place in different
service and hymn books.

We are committed to our work with families and uniformed
groups. We run a sunday school during school term. Most
months we have a parade/family service, usually on the second
Sunday of the month. We also run a service after school during
term time.

We occasionally run children's workshops.

We realize that many people have quiet spirituality so we run a
quieter evening service once a month (see calendar for details).
For example this quiet service could take the form of Celtic
prayer, Taize prayer, a service of inner peace and healing.
