We a mission focused church seeking to know Jesus and make him known. 

During the week, we have many times when we gather together as Church. The main times we do this are on Sundays. When we gather we do so in different ways, yet underneath the different expressions lie the same values. Namely we want to meet with Jesus,  be changed and be equipped to make him known through our whole lives, both collectively and individually.

 If your looking for an alpha course we are starting one on Tuesday the 20th of January at 7:30 get in touch or vist our website for more information.
