We are a Christ centred community at the centre of our village with a wide variety of people of all ages and experiences of life. We are excited about helping people discover the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ, growing in relationship with God, and serving him right where we are. We hope you will come and visit us and explore faith for yourself. We would love to help and encourage you in that journey.
Increasing Our Faith
We want to go deeper with God. In worship, in prayer and in nurturing the scared centre of our lives.
A Vibrant Christian Community
We want to be a vibrant Christian community, where all are welcomed. We want to be a place where we can share our joys and our sorrows, and everyone's gifts are recognised and shared. A place where people feel a sense of belonging.
Making a Difference
We want to make a difference locally and beyond, in the power of the Spirit. Serving our community and being open-hearted towards the wider world.
