Welcome to our church.
We are a community of people who seek to love God, love one another and love our neighbours.
As a happy, lively, gathering of people who see our core identity as ambassadors for the kingdom of God, we seek to take every opportunity to communicate the Gospel effectively, deepening our own relationship with God in order to share it creatively with others through fighting poverty, inequality and injustice and opening up our church buildings to the wider community.
Sundays begin with a quiet Communion service at 9am.
At our 11 am service, we are interactive and intergenerational - Following, what we believe to be, the prompting of the Holy Spirit, instead of sending children and young people out to separate groups during this service we provide ways for all to digest and engage with the gospel together.
We have a time of musical worship, then Bible readings, followed by a short sermon, after which we disperse to five different spaces in the main church, each of which is designed for a different learning style.
People are free to join any area, and we’re often surprised by who goes where.
To our delight, people of every generation are finding it fruitful. We’re getting to know each other better, enjoying each other’s creations and, in the short time we’ve been doing Intergenerational & Interactive Church our attendance among all age groups is slowly rising.
On Wednesdays, we have a midweek communion service (except for the 3rd Wednesday of each month which is Morning Prayer).
We love having new people come to our church - you will be made very welcome.
