We are here to serve God and other people. We are a very friendly, informal and inclusive community with a range in age from babies to over 90's. We use a wide variety of music. We work hard to serve the wider community and have strong links with schools, homes for the aged and village societies. We enjoy using our warm airy, well lit, grade 2 listed building, which was recently refurbished to improve accessibility and layout,  and to provide new refreshment faclities for worship and events. We welcome you warmly!
