What is the church like ?
Sunday services always start at 9.30am. The services are varied and try to keep a balance between the traditional and more recent influences. We are never stuffy and our music includes well known hymns as well as contemporary songs and choruses. Whatever your preferences you can be sure you will find something for you. This is a church for people who welcome the opportunity to be themselves, think through their faith intelligently and be open and tolerant to people who think differently. There is a Sunday School and Crèche available. Why not bring your children or grandchildren?
We hope that for whatever reason you visit our church community centre you will find this to be a place of welcome. We are only able to provide such a community resource thanks to the help of a dedicated band of volunteers who help us keep the centre open, clean, garden, type and dozens of other essential skills and services - thank you to everybody!
