About us

Our Aim is "To know Jesus and to make Him known". Join us as we learn more about God and how His love affects our lives

Sunday Service 10:30am. We are a friendly welcoming congregation, who love to learn more about Jesus and share that love with others
Some Sundays we have 'cafe Church', where we sit around tables, drink coffee, share prayers and discuss matters of faith. Other Sundays we are more traditional and sit in rows. Our communion service is usually on the 3rd Sunday of the month, and all who love Jesus are welcome to take part.

Tuesdays some of us meet at Bicky's for Coffee and a Chat
Wednesdays Prayer in the Vestry 9:30 am

On Thursdays we meet at 10:45 in the back room to discuss the bible and it's meaning to our lives. Everybody welcome

Friday is when the mother and toddlers group Tiggys meets from 10:30 AM in the Church
Saturdays we run a Tiggy's Play cafe from 10am. 

 Church Weekend at LEE ABBEY

We are intending to visit Lee Abbey on the 17th to 19th May 2024. "through worship, teaching, prayer and the simple hospitality of our community, find the space you need to be renewed, refreshed and resourced." Those who do not wish to be involved in the seminars can also find space through walking in the fabulous estate and countryside - or just soak up the atmosphere!
Prices are from £180 pp (single occupancy in a twin room has a supplement)
