Welcome 

As a part of the Church of England we are a part of the global church.  We see all we do as part of the bigger picture that is our local community, our town, our nation and the whole earth. Most Sundays we offer a quiet and shorter service at 9.00am and a family friendly service at 10.30am. The values are the same at both, aiming for flexibility within a structure and a contemporary feel. We desire to join in with God the Father's mission: to make his Son Jesus Christ known in word and action as led by the Holy Spirit.
 
Whatever the reason you are visiting our website, please feel at home with us. Explore the pages and find out more about what we hope for and what we are doing to make that happen. Join us in worship and enjoy the peace of being in God's presence. Join us in fellowship at the end of the services. Participate with us in the love of God and help us to reach out in His love to our community and beyond.

From David this week.....

What a blessing it is to be hearing from women about women of God in the Bible: great words from Rosie Giddy and Becki Bensusan already with more to come. Bernard Cope, preaching in this series at the 9am service on Sunday 6th August, also referred to Galatians 3:28: There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. St Paul, who wrote Galatians, as a former devout Jew would have used this prayer every morning: “Thank you God that you have not made me a Gentile, a slave or a woman”, as these categories did not have equal access to God. In Christ himself, Paul subverts the prayer. The key phrase is in Christ. Whatever background people are from, then through faith in Christ, they have full access to God the Father and inherit all His blessings. All in Christ are equal in God’s sight and united in His family. God loves us equally, but treats us as individuals. In Christ we each have to work out what God is calling us to do for Him, whether we are male or female. We look forward to hearing the forthcoming sermons on the response of more women of God through Kerry Shipley, Heather Williams, Jenny Allan & Roshini Hyde and Ruth Turner.
