We are a FAIRTRADE parish.

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.

The Parish Clergy Team

We seek to help as well as pray for those in need.

Take a look at the range of mission societies and charitable agencies we support to see how we try and engage with the world in which we live.

The St Paul’s Centre

Work on completing the building is moving ahead very quickly now, and soon we will start advertising for staff.

Our work there will really begin when we can start to offer help and advice to those seeking relief from debt and unemployment; offer a listening ear and a welcome at the cafe and support people searching for jobs.

The Cell of

Our Lady of Walsingham

& St John Vianney

On the first Tuesday of every month we meet at

St Agnes’ at 7pm for Evensong & Benediction.

Everyone is welcome to join us, whether you have

been to Walsingham as a pilgrim or not.

New Children’s Choir

We are hoping to start a new children’s choir in the parish and would welcome feedback about interest via a web survey which can be found by clicking this button.

The choir is not a traditional Sunday church choir but an activity for outside school for all who like to sing. It will be based at Holy Trinity Church.
