Our congregation has a broad range of churchmanship and ages. There is a range of children's and youth work from 3 to 17 years on Sundays; we also maintain a special area where parents of under-3s can sit in comfort with their children during the service if they wish. Our main Sunday service is supported by a robed choir and organ. There is a pattern of all-age social events. Study and fellowship groups seek to deepen our faith.

Our Ministerial Team consists of The Revd. Richard Banham and 3 Readers. We are also fortunate to have three retired clergy in the village who play an active role in our church life.

Our churches are also important to the wider neighbourhood. The churchyard at St Helen’s is still open for burials. Remembrance Sunday and other seasonal services are important civic occasions in the village.
