Welcome!

We are a small church with a big heart. We are trying to get closer to God, to live better lives, to make a difference in the world, and be more truly the people God meant us to be. We are inclusive, and open to questioning and challenges.

Private prayer

Church will be open for most of the hours of daylight, 7 days a week.

Please try to avoid touching too many things! Sanitiser is available on the way in, and please write your name in the book, or use the QR code for track and trace.

Please sit in one of the front pews and observe a sensible distance from any one else in the building. As the contents/ fluid of the hand sanitiser is highly flammable, we have been advised not to allow the lighting of prayer candles at this time.
