We are a very friendly church, offering a warm welcome to everyone. We see ourselves as a Christian family made up of all sorts of people, young and old, from many different backgrounds.

We aim to be a place of spiritual refreshment. Our services combine the best of tradition with modern styles and influences. Our worship centres around the "Lord’s Table", sharing bread and wine as a sign of the love of God in Christ Jesus, which draws us closer to him and to each other.

On Sundays, children and young people are very welcome. They enjoy their own activities, and also join in parts of the main service at 10.00am.
We have an evening service at 6.00pm which is aimed more for adults.

On the first Sunday of each month we have Messy Church, everyone welcome.

Through our worship, group meetings and other events we seek to build up our community, lead people to a life-giving and life-changing encounter with God, and offer them the chance to explore faith and spirituality.

We hope you will visit us soon and find out for yourself.
