Our Mission

We are called to serve our local parish and the wider community, so that what we say and do reflects our love of God in Christ Jesus such that people will find a spiritual home here with us.

Welcome to all

If you have been accessing our live-streamed services, or simply looking at our website, welcome!  Perhaps you find church on line easier to try out than a physical building, perhaps these extraordinary times have triggered something spiritually inside you, perhaps you would appreciate linking with a Christian community.
