W e l c o m e !
Attending a church service for the first time can be a daunting experience, and today many people are unfamiliar with the kind of formal worship which has characterised much of the church for centuries.
Our variety of worship services aim to provide for both those who are familiar with the traditional format, and for others who prefer a more informal and contemporary approach.
If you have never been to church before, you may like to come to the 10:00am 'First Sunday' Service at the beginning of every month which is geared for accessibility with a relaxed atmosphere and contemporary music.
On all other Sundays there is a 10:00am Holy Communion liturgical service in the more traditional style with familiar hymns and robed choir.
We have a high value for all our traditions of worship both old and new, since the focus and purpose of our worship is to draw near to God, encounter His love and grace and know the difference His presence makes to our lives.
Whichever service you choose to attend, you can be assured of a relaxed, non-pressured, and welcome environment. We look forward to meeting you.
