Sunday Worship

Our main Sunday service is at 11am. We currently meet in the church hall, while the needs of our elderly church building are being reviewed. Access to the church hall is down the left hand side of the church building. Please come as you are, and stay for a cup of tea or coffee after the service. 

Please see updated message from the Rector regarding the church building (Nov 2023)
