We are a lively, friendly church, open to Christians of all traditions. The underlying churchmanship is modern catholic.

The medieval building (12C with 14C and 16C additions) was tastefully enlarged and reordered in the 1960s. You can find out more about the building on the related page (click on 'About the Church Building' on the right) and on the 'Features and Facilities' link (above).

Outside of the normal service times, the church is open for visitors from 11am to 12noon on Wednesdays, 9am to 11am on Fridays and from 9.30 to 11am on the first Saturday of the month.

For more information about the church and its organisations and activities, please click on to the related page on the right. For times of services use the link above.  Please check the News board on the right for changes to our normal pattern of services and events, and click on an item for more information

We aim to serve the local community in many different ways. There are strong links with other local churches and with the church primary school .
