We welcome you to keep connected, attend online or in person (following Covid-safe guidelines) as you are able, and to to love one another and our neighbours.

Weekly services

Everyone is welcome at our morning praise service at 10.30am, including a mixture of ‘in person’ and online elements. There is currently no need to book, but seats will be available on a first come, first served basis.  

A midweek traditional Communion service, with hymns accompanied by our organist, is held on Wednesday mornings at 9.30am. A time for contemplation and quiet.
