We offer a warm welcome to anyone who wants to join us in worship

We are ordinary people who have discovered God’s extraordinary love for us, and we accept our part in making that love known to others in word and deed.

Through prayer, reading of Scripture and the administration of the Sacraments we invite God into our lives to mould us in the image of Jesus.

Through our worship we ask God to lead us and we try and encourage one another to deepen our faith in Jesus Christ, in order that he might help us to better serve Him in the communities in which we live. Our church life is sacramental and our ethos, as part of the Anglican Church,stands in a modern Anglo-Catholic tradition.
