We’re an active church, not restricted by the walls of our building, and hold a number of events both within the church, around the parish area, and further afield. We hold church services every Sunday at 10.30am, and have Communion Services on the last Sunday of each month. We hold family friendly All Age Services on the first Sunday of each month. You will find a warm greeting at any of these services, where we would be delighted to have you visit us.
