Welcome to our Website!

We are a group of ordinary people who seek to follow Jesus Christ in whom we find meaning and purpose to our lives, and we seek to serve our community in his name.

**SPECIAL TEMPORARY ARRANGEMENTS DURING THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS**

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND ARCHBISHOPS OF CANTERBURY AND YORK:

"In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice. Churches should be open where possible but with no public worship services taking place. Prayers can be said by clergy and ministers on behalf of everyone and churches should consider ways of sharing this with the wider community."

**IN VIEW OF THIS, OUR CHURCH WILL BE CLOSED FOR PUBLIC WORSHIP UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.**
and, as of March 24th, the Archbishops have instructed church buildings to be closed to the public.
Our Vicar will be celebrating Holy Communion from home at 10.00 am each Sunday. To join him 'virtually' click "SERVICES" below:

In the meantime please feel free to explore our website bearing in mind that any events which were planned to take place after 19th March will not now go ahead.

We hope that our website will give you all the information about our church and parish that you need. However, if you cannot find what you are looking for, please feel free to contact one of the people listed on the contacts page. The "Magazine" tab above will take you to our magazine archives where you will be able to gain some idea of parish life and events.

We hope to add further pages in the future and if you have any comments or suggestions as to what you feel would be helpful, please let us know.
