Sunday 6:30 pm monthly

We have an evening service on the first Sunday of each month (except August). The emphasis of the service is on longer periods of sung worship and opportunities for prayer for healing and blessing. In addition there will be time to reflect on Scripture and space for the Holy Spirit to inspire our time together.

Wednesday 10.30am weekly

This is a spoken service of Holy Communion with a congregation of about 30 people and is led by our clergy team with support from our readers.  The service always ends with refreshments (usually fresh scones as well !!!!!!!) and is a welcoming and friendly service.
