We aim to be a welcoming, inclusive and diverse church where worship and prayer are at the centre of our lives. Our mission statement is to worship God, follow Jesus, serve our neighbour and welcome all, which can be summarised as
WELCOME, WORSHIP, FELLOWSHIP, SERVICE
Worship is important because we seek to put God at the centre of our lives. Holy Communion is a high point of our shared life together as we deepen our relationship with God and grow in faith.
Fellowship is the way in which we show God’s love to each other by building up relationships, supporting and encouraging one another as we share our lives together.
Service is the way in which we put the gospel into action and share God’s love for our neighbourhood and the world around us.
We welcome all new members wherever they are on their faith journey and invite you to come and be part of our church community.
