About Us

Sunday Services

8am Traditional Communion Service. This is a quieter, said communion service (Except in August)

10am Worship Services

1st Sunday of the Month is an All Age Service where the whole Church family come together to worship, pray, hear Gods word and have a talk that is accessible to young people and adults, sometimes we get quite creative in this service!

2nd and 4th Sunday of the Month is a Holy Communion Service where we share stories of what God has been up to in our lives, have an extended time of worship, hear from Gods word, have a talk based on the bible and see how this might apply to our lives, pray together and then share in Holy Communion. There is full provision for Children.

3rd and 5th Sundays is Morning Worship where we share stories of what God has been up to in our lives, have an extended time of worship, hear from Gods word, have a talk based on the bible and see how this might apply to our lives, pray together. There is full provision for Children.

As a Church that believes in the gifts of the Holy Spirit we are open to hearing God speak through words, pictures and prophecy. From time to time a word might be shared that speaks into someone’s life situation. At all our 10am services we have a special dedicated team who are there to pray for anyone after the service. Many people come and have prayer and are strengthened in their faith, sometimes healed and are certainly blessed by the Lord! Also after our 10am service we offer tea and coffee for free to everyone who wants to stay to catch up with friends and have fellowship together.
