We are a small friendly church and welcome people of all ages, any church background, or none. Our aim is to serve God, walking the way of Jesus, in the community around us and the wider world.
WORSHIP WITH US
Sunday morning at 10
Worship is led by our minister, Revd Alison Toplas, on the first and third Sundays of each month and by visiting preachers on the other Sundays. For more details see ‘What’s On’
On Christmas Eve we have a candlelit family carol service at 4:30 pm followed by drinks and mince pies.
Thursday from 12.30 – an opportunity for people to meet for conversation and a cooked lunch. Transport there and home again can be provided and special diets are catered for. If you’d like to come, or would like more information, please get in touch.
BOOKS & COFFEE Every month on the first Saturday from 10:30 till 12. Borrow, swap or buy from our large stock of over 500 secondhand books, fiction & non-fiction. There are also a few dvds, audio books, and puzzles. There’s no charge for borrowing, if you want to keep a book then we invite you to make a donation. All proceeds go to the charities we regularly support. Come and browse the books or for a coffee and a chat.
FOOD BANK We are a collection centre for our local food bank based in Park Barn. Non-perishable food can be left at the church for us to deliver to them. Given the need to keep stock turning over, we have a list of which items are most urgently needed at any one time.
