We are a church community inspired by the catholic movement in the Church of England which flowered at the end of the 19th century. We are also open to the realities of the contemporary world, and to being led by the Holy Spirit into new understandings. Our worship has colour, movement and silence in a way that engages with all the senses and touches deep within. We aim to be a loving, prayerful community: centred on a regular celebration of the Eucharist, catholic and holistic, ecumenical and inclusive; helping people to be Christians at home and at work; outward looking and trusting in the goodness of God.
