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.....

The fourth beatitude: Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they will be filled (Matt 5:6).  Righteousness can be understood in three ways:  1) Christ is God’s righteousness - we are made right with God by our faith in Jesus and clothed with Christ’s righteousness (Romans 3:21-24; Gal 3:27).  2) Moral righteousness - living in accordance with God’s will: right thinking, motives and actions.  3) Social righteousness - Justice and harmony in the human community.  3) flows from 2) which flows from 1).  Through faith in the Lord Jesus, including his atonement for our sins on the cross, we are reconciled to God the Father (not by our works but by Christ’s work). Then the Holy Spirit can flow in our lives. As we change within to live God’s way, then society is transformed. The more we hunger for God’s goodness, the more we shall be filled. The more we thirst for peace and justice in society, the more we shall be filled. Societal transformation flows from personal transformation. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead be filled [keep on being filled] with the Holy Spirit [Eph 5:18
