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.....

We take a week’s break from St Paul’s 1st letter to the Corinthians for the Service with the Bishop of Barking Peter Hill. We are using the readings in the world-wide ‘Common Lectionary’ set for this 19th January, the 2nd Sunday in the season of Epiphany. The bishop’s presence reminds us that we are part of the wider church nationally and internationally. These readings could not be more appropriate for those who are stepping out to confess belief and belonging publicly. Chapter 49 is the second for the four Servant Songs of Isaiah, addressed to the Israel about her vocation: the mission of the servant. These words were embodied by the Lord Jesus and can also be applied individually: before I was born the Lord called me (v1), the Lord, who is faithful, the Holy one of Israel, has called you (v7). Then we have from John chapter 1 the beginning of Jesus’ ministry, the one who will baptise in the Holy Spirit (v33). In Confirmation the bishop prays for each person to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Thus empowered we invite others to come and meet Jesus too, just like the first disciples (verses 35-42).
