Thanks for visiting our website. If you want to find out more then please contact us or simply drop in for a chat. I'm normally around during the week - and, of course, on Sundays.
As we start the advent season we're looking forward to celebrating God's greatest gift to us - his only son, Jesus. Why not take a fresh look by taking up our advent challenge of reading the Bible story by reading one chapter of Luke's gospel each day during the advent season?

Prayer is important. Please make it a priority to join us as we gather each evening and begin our 2020 Year of Prayer.
Our weekly "Regenerate" prayer meetings resume the following week each Tuesday at 8:00pm
Sunday Mornings - 10:30am
We meet for morning worship at 10:30am with an all-age, family-friendly, service. We begin with worship, prayer and a short talk before the children go to their own special activities. The adults stay in the main hall for Bible teaching. The service lasts about an hour, or a little longer if we are celebrating communion. The first Sunday each month is a family service which includes a special focus on BB and GB.
After the service we all meet up together for "Fairtrade Cafe" and nibbles while the children play.
Sunday Evenings - 6:30pm
We hold different types of evening service during the month.
Credo Cafe is a relaxed cafe-style event where we examine Christianity or a topical Christian Topic
Reflective Communion is a quieter space to share communion, worship God and give thanks for his amazing gift of Jesus.
