Our Building

We are an Arts and Crafts Grade 2* listed building, designed by the Architect Caroe. The church is widely considered to be an architectural gem.

We are working towards our silver award


Music and Worship

The church is used by several community choirs who rehearse in our building and regularly offer concerts both in church and elsewhere

Organ

Our midweek Holy Communion Service on Wednesdays at 10.30am alternates between BCP and CW.
At Christmas and Easter an 8am BCP Holy Communion service is offered

We have a regular choir that leads our sung worship at all our services. There is a blend of traditional and more contemporary worship, including Iona, Taize. We use Hymns of Glory and AMNS but include music from elsewhere on a regular basis. The choir often prepares an anthem. Elements of the communion service are still sung. On occasion other instruments are brought in to lead the worship (flute, guitar).
