Traditional Anglo-Catholic parish with a friendly and welcoming congregation of all ages. S. Helen's is a wonderful medieval building. Children and young families are welcome and we provide a creche and children's club every week. We have a small and committed choir who practice each week and are always looking out for new members. The New English Hymnal is used and an anthem sung each week. A full liturgical calendar is observed, along with a daily mass.
