This page lists meetings and events for the whole church. They are not aimed at a particular interest or age group.
Our services start at 10.00 am every Sunday morning and usually last a little over an hour. There is also a meeting at 9.00 am for about half an hour of prayer before each Sunday service.
Services for the first of the month are usually shorter; communion services longer.
All our services are fairly informal and flexible, based on the structure laid down in Common

First Sunday of the month
This is a service with visitors deliberately in mind. Sermons tend to be shorter and not part of a regular preaching series. The service is also lighter in terms of liturgy. We have a children's talk and we may include a dramatic sketch or reading.

Second, Fourth (and any Fifth) Sunday
These are services of 'Morning Prayer' which is simply the Church of England's name for a service where Holy Communion is not taken. We are still fairly informal, with contemporary worship. Sermons are usually about 20 to 25 minutes long and tend to follow a theme or book of the Bible.
This is our service of Holy Communion which is richer in liturgical content. For all that, it is no less accessible, with the order of service printed in a service booklet or displayed on screen. Sermons tend to be under twenty minutes and, where the theme allows, more devotional in scope.
Thursday Evenings at 7.30 pm
From 9th May 2019 we will be commencing a weekly Bible study and prayer meeting. The book we are looking at is John's Gospel and we start with chapter 1 verses 1 and 2.
