We are a group of Christians who believe that Jesus has the answers to the biggest challenges we face as human beings.
We are now holding services in the church building on Sundays at 10.30am. We will adhere to the Government’s advice published in their guidance for Places of Worship to try keep each other as safe as possible at this time. You can view our Risk Assessment for services here. You will no longer be required to book to attend our service but we will be encouraging people to sit distant from those not in their household/ bubble, to take a lateral flow test before you come and please note that government guidance says it is expected and recommended that you continue to wear a mask in indoor situations. If you would prefer not to join us in person at this point then the services will continue to be live streamed please do go to our live stream page
We know that this is a challenging time for everybody. If you would like to get to speak with somebody in the church please do contact us.  We would love to hear from you.
