welcomes you just as you are

Please visit our main website for further information, this week's Diary and details of special services and events

Worship and Visiting

We come together for our main weekly worship on Sundays at 10.00am.  These services range from a traditional sung Eucharist with robed choir and organist to a simpler and less formal All-Age Family Service.  The latter is on the second Sunday of the month and is followed by a separate service of Holy Communion.

For a quieter, more reflective experience, we offer the Office of Morning Prayer on Tuesdays at 9.00am, Compline on Sundays at 6.00pm and a said Holy Communion service on Thursdays at 9.30am.

Details of these can be found under the Services and Events tab.

Our beautiful building is open daily from 9.00am to 5.00pm.  Anyone is welcome to come inside to enjoy the history and tranquility and to take time to pray or simply to sit and admire.

Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals

To arrange a Baptism (Christening), Service of Thanksgiving or Wedding please come to the Church and speak to one of our clergy after the 10.00am Sunday service, when they will be delighted to see you.

To discuss a Funeral please contact your funeral director in the first instance, who will then contact us.
