For centuries people have worshipped at our church. They have come for joyful and sad times, for baptisms (christenings), weddings and funerals. They have come for the major festivals of the church at Easter and Christmas. They have silently slipped in and prayed silently and slipped out again during the course of a day. They have gathered Sunday by Sunday to celebrate the resurrection and the good news of Jesus Christ. And we continue to do so today.
Our services are regularly held on Sundays. Please click on the link for our what's happening this month guide which is available for download as a PDF file. Other changes are published on the church noticeboard.
