A place to be with God
For centuries, we’ve been gathering together for regular worship. Our style on a Sunday dignified, relaxed and friendly. It is largely traditional (so we enjoy singing hymns and celebrate the Eucharist (Communion) at most of our services), but alongside celebrating the tradition that we have had gifted to us, we also gather together in the present, so we use modern words and prayers, and our eyes are firmly fixed on the future, making sure that all our services refresh and equip us for the week ahead.
Your church, in your community
Our faith matters to us – whether for some of us are just exploring what faith might mean, or for those us all who have been on this journey for year, we try and allow our faith to infiltrate our week ahead. So as a church, we also seek to provide space for our community to meet, make friends, and, especially this year, enjoy some warmth, hot drinks and food.

What we believe
The Christian Faith is not a tick list of good behaviour, but is a journey of discovering how much we are known, forgiven, loved and wanted. As we explore that, so we find ourselves being invited to love in return, and join God in his work of bringing light and goodness to all places and all people.
The Church of England encompasses a wide range of ways of expressing that, and providing the space for people to reflect on what faith in Christ might mean. More information can be found here: https://www.churchofengland.org/our-faith/what-we-believe.
We would describe ourselves as a Liberal Anglo-Catholic Parish welcoming all ages and stages into a vibrant and loving community of faith.
