Thanks for visiting our website. If you want to find out more then please contact us or simply drop in for a chat. I'm normally around during the week - and, of course, on Sundays.
We've just started to record and publish sermons on this website. Take a look at the "Sermons" menu option and keep up to date - even if you are unable to join us on a Sunday.
Rev. Claire Blatchford
Half Term Week - w/c 17th February
During the half term break we're taking the opportunity to get some maintenance work done to the main hall and side hall. Both halls are closed until Sunday morning.
The church lounge and back hall are still available for use - but there is no access between them through the building.
Thank you for your patience.
Take a moment...
This is the video that we played a couple of weeks ago during morning worship.
Take a moment to be quiet, listen to the song again and worship Jesus, God's only son.

Year of Prayer - 2020
Spending time in prayer to God - both on our own and together - is vital.
This Tuesday everyone is encouraged to take time out to pray and fast - making time to focus on spending time in prayer.
Our regular prayer meeting at church will not be happening this week due to the planned maintenance actions - so please use this time to pray at home.
Sunday Mornings - 10:30am
We meet for morning worship at 10:30am with an all-age, family-friendly, service. We begin with worship, prayer and a short talk before the children go to their own special activities. The adults stay in the main hall for Bible teaching. The service lasts about an hour, or a little longer if we are celebrating communion. The first Sunday each month is a family service which includes a special focus on BB and GB.
After the service we all meet up together for "Fairtrade Cafe" and nibbles while the children play.
Sunday Evenings - Credo Cafe - 6:30pm (monthly)
Credo Cafe is a relaxed cafe-style event where we examine Christianity or a topical Christian Topic. Topics are sometimes introduced with a short thought-provoking video followed by an informal discussion in small groups.
Everyone is welcome.
