Welcome 

As a part of the Church of England we are a part of the global church.  We see all we do as part of the bigger picture that is our local community, our town, our nation and the whole earth. Most Sundays we offer a quiet and shorter service at 9.00am and a family friendly service at 10.30am. The values are the same at both, aiming for flexibility within a structure and a contemporary feel. We desire to join in with God the Father's mission: to make his Son Jesus Christ known in word and action as led by the Holy Spirit.
 
Whatever the reason you are visiting our website, please feel at home with us. Explore the pages and find out more about what we hope for and what we are doing to make that happen. Join us in worship and enjoy the peace of being in God's presence. Join us in fellowship at the end of the services. Participate with us in the love of God and help us to reach out in His love to our community and beyond.

From David this week.....

This week is National Marriage Week and in God’s providence the portion of Ephesians we are learning from is chapter 5 verses 21 to 33, where St Paul gives teaching on marriage. We find out about God’s views on marriage by an analogy to how Christ relates to the church. This view of marriage was very radical in the first century, as women were treated more as possessions than equal partners. St Paul starts off by saying that Christians should submit to one another out of reverence to Christ and places strong responsibilities on both husband and wife. In marriage both male and female partners are   equally loved in God’s sight, each with responsibilities towards the other according to God’s pattern in heaven, as marriage is part of the created order. Misuse of power through physical and verbal means are ruled out by this teaching. Let us all as the Bride of Christ be made holy, cleansed with the washing of water through the word (verse 26).
 
Rev Canon David Hague

As we start this New Year we are excited about what God has planned for our us and our community. As such, we would like to spend the month of January praying into our 5 Transformational Goals that are:

  • Strong Families
  • Local Businesses
  • Environment
  • Overcoming Loneliness
  • Healthy Community


We have scheduled 4 creative prayer evenings to be held in the church on Thursday 7th, Wednesday 13th, Thursday 21st and Wednesday 27th January starting at 7.45pm. We will then finish our month of prayer with an Encounter and Engage evening where we can celebrate all that the Lord has done.
