You are warmly invited to join us for our main service of the week. Here we come before God to give thanks and praise for all that is good in our lives and to bring before God that which troubles us. We listen to the Bible together, hear a sermon, and sing hymns. We share communion together or, for those who do not receive, have a blessing. After the service, we enjoy coffee, a chat and toast in the Hall.


We're delighted to share our Advent and Christmas services with you. Please do come along to share the good news of Christ's birth!
