We are a small but growing church with an accent on working with children and young families. We have Sunday School or activities for children during the Sunday service using the café area at the back of church. Overall our worship style is traditional but transitioning into something more contemporary.

Our main Sunday service starts at 11.00, finishing around 12.00 (see services tab for details)

Everyone is welcome at all of our services and we have people from many different cultures in our congregations. Children (especially lively ones) are very welcome and there's plenty of space for small, active, people to move around during the services.
