We are a Christian Community that worships in 3 villages in a variety of ways.

We have 3 lovely historic buildings .

St James is our largest, built in 1866 and we hold traditional and contemporary worship here, as well as events and celebrations.

All ages are welcome throughout the week with particular focus for older folk or preschools & babes and carers on different days.

We are open to everyone. Seekers of Christian heritage and religion please come and explore.

We would like to share our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ with you.
