We invite you to explore our site and find out a bit more about us. You would be made most welcome at any of our worship services or any of the other activities which go on in the churches.

We are mixed congregations, drawn from different backgrounds, and united in our shared Christian faith. We’d love for you to come and share in that mix and faith

We want to be welcoming, inclusive congregations, where all feel valued and loved, irrespective of background, race, gender or where they may be on their faith journey. It’s a shared journey, where we hope to support and learn from one another.

We try to make our faith the centre of our lives, as best we can. We aim to laugh and cry together; sharing in the joy and tears of our communities.

We’d love to see you, whether you’re visiting the area or sticking around, you will be made most welcome.

(PS Well behaved dogs are always welcome at church services and events).
