We are a growing worshipping community with a big heart.

Our worship is Anglican, drawing from the Anglo-Catholic tradition, with a mixture of older and more modern lively hymns.
We welcome people of all ages, and try to make the oldest to the youngest feel equally valued and loved by God.

We support many community activities in our local area,
taking seriously our Lord's command to serve ALL our neighbours.
We always attempt to offer prayer and support to those who come to us in a non-judgemental way.

If you are from the Abbey Wood estate and are interested in arranging a BAPTISM (Christening), or a WEDDING, please contact the Vicar.
Please note that you will normally need to be resident on the Abbey Wood Estate or Thamesmead to access these services

This is our main weekly act of worship. We try to make it as easy to take part as possible, and congregation members are always happy to help if you are new to church. The sermon normally lasts around 15 mins. Communion (the bread and wine) is offered for all who wish to receive. Once a month we welcome a new member into the Christian community through baptism.
Every Sunday at 10:30 AM for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
