We are your local Church of England Church – a group of people who meet together each week to worship God and who strive to show God’s love and care to others in the community and in the world through our words and actions.

On this website you will find details of our services and activities to which you are warmly invited.  If it is some time since you last went to church or you have never been, please don’t worry; you will be made very welcome.

We hope you enjoy visiting our website and find it very helpful.
