Church Services Spring 2021

With the arrival of Spring and better weather we are beginning to hold some Church services outdoors in our churchyards, in most cases these will be socially distanced, and do wrap up warm and bring a chair along. Arrangements may vary locally, so please check the What’s On section which will have more details about the service you’re going to attend.

Our churches are open for private prayer

When visiting our churches, please be vigilant in sanitising your hands, especially when entering and leaving. Please try not to touch any surfaces within the buildings and wear a face mask.

Our Sunday morning services

These continue on our YouTube Channel at 10.00am each week.

Sunday afternoons

Join us for our online service led by Rev Prebendary Nicholas Lowton. See the What’s On section for the Zoom link and for the Order of Service.

We do hope that you’ll join us for worship in whatever way you choose, and we look forward to welcoming you.

Mission and Vision

Growing Christianity, connecting people to faith

Our vision is to respond in love to the stirrings of God’s presence. And to grow in wisdom, compassion and praise.

Throughout the ages God has invited us to a life of trust by showing what kind of God he is, through the beauty of creation and his perfect image, Jesus of Nazareth.

The beginning of faith is to trust in a loving God who knows us more than we know ourselves. And from that step a journey begins. As we travel, we believe the Holy Spirit will lead us, to know more and more of God’s love.
