Our congregation is a welcoming community. The atmosphere is prayerful, supportive, and rich in fellowship. We hope that visitors will find us friendly and welcoming.

During our worship, our vicar wears robes of the appropriate liturgical colours.

Lay participation is well established. For example, preaching, intercessions, and Bible readings, and Eucharistic ministry are also undertaken on a rota, with younger members helping particularly during the monthly family service.



Children are always very welcome: the congregation likes having children around and will always understand on those rare occasions when they get a little restless.

The disability-compliant toilet in the foyer includes baby-changing facilities. Please ask if you don’t know where its location.






Food and refreshment

We serve refreshments after each Sunday service such as tea, coffee, and soft drinks in the main Church Hall. All of it is Fair Trade … of course.

We often follow a service with food such as brunch or a faith lunch.

And it doesn’t stop there. The Church operates Food Thrive, our large food co-operative programme. Please click here for further details.


Disability and special needs

The entire building is easily accessed by wheelchair users or anyone with mobility problems.

The Church has a brand-new sound system. We recommend that anyone with a hearing aid switches it to the ‘T’ position on entry to the church.

We have good-quality toilet facilities that are fully disabled compliant, which also contains baby-changing facilities.
