We are a busy, friendly family church that loves and accepts everyone.
It doesn’t matter how young or old you are - if you are a doubter, enquirer or even a saint – you are always welcome to any of our worship or events as we explore living faith through Jesus Christ.
We have great provision for children and young people every Sunday, or we're equally happy to hear and see them in church!
Please explore further. We would love to see you. Joyfully Serving Jesus

Thought for the Season
“He who enriches others becomes poor. He took to himself the poverty of my flesh so that I might obtain the riches of his godhead. He who is full empties himself. He emptied himself of his godhead for a brief time so that I might share in his fullness.
What is this wealth of goodness? What is this mystery that touches me? I received the divine image and I did not keep it. He receives my flesh to save the image and grant immortality to the flesh. This, his second communion with us, is far more marvellous than the first.”
