We are pleased to announce that, if all goes according to the Government's plan to ease lockdown restrictions, we will be opening our doors for worship once again from Easter Sunday!
As you know, we have seen a decrease in the number of cases over the last few weeks and, with the vaccination programme rolling out well, we are delighted that we will be able to welcome everyone back to celebrate with us. Of course, some of you may still feel wary of mixing with others, but rest assured that we will continue with social distancing, the wearing of masks, sanitising of hands, and so on, to keep everyone as safe as possible. And we will still post the monthly Service at Home sheets here on our website for now.
In the meantime, please continue to do all you can to keep yourselves and each other safe.
If you would like us to pray for you, please contact us using the details on the 'Contact Us' page.
We are glad that you are here and we hope you will find what you are looking for. If you have recently moved into the area, or if perhaps want to visit the church for the first time, we give you a very warm welcome. We hope you will feel at home among us.
Some people still associate the church with a building but the church is really about people. It’s about valuing each other and encouraging people to grow in the love of God and serving our community.
We have lots of different activities each week to which you are most welcome. More information can be found on the menu pages along the top of this page.
We have a lift that enables access to all levels of the church building. We also have an accessible toilet and baby change facilities, as well as a hearing loop system.
Sunday 10.30am (communion most weeks) followed by refreshments, and there is provision for children.
To see our next big service/celebration please click on 'Upcoming Events' at the top of this page.
For what is happening in any specific week please see the monthly NEWSLETTER or the calendar.
