What to expect

Our aim: whether you’re looking at Christianity for the first time or have been a Christian for many years,
we want you to be encouraged and inspired by a morning with us.

  • The service lasts until about 11.30am
  • Our worship blends Bible reading and prayer with traditional hymns and modern songs

  • We have a talk from the bible that is relevant and meaningful to our lives
  • We share the Lord’s Supper together as part of the service (first and third Sundays); we explain this as we take part
  • After our service tea and coffee are served; some services are followed by a lunch

What we believe

We are a Christian church and believe all can have relationship with God.
We believe this can happen because of Jesus, who invites us to follow him.

Is it just Sundays?

Absolutely not! God is with us all week long and we aim to lead lives that show it. We’re not perfect and we do make mistakes, but we want to make a positive difference in everything we do.
