Our Church

We are a Church of all ages, backgrounds and experiences seeking and sharing God’s love and purpose in our local community and throughout the world.

We try to follow the example of Jesus Christ in the whole of life.

We celebrate diversity; pursue justice and aim to show acceptance for one another.

We have monthly charity collections for local, national, and international charities.

We regularly support local food banks.

The United Reformed Church

Historically, United Reformed Churches are a union of English Presbyterian and the Congregational Churches in England, Scotland and Wales.

In practice, the church membership, through its Elders, has the responsibility for the vision and administration of the church under God’s guidance.

The Minister and Elders provide pastoral care for church members, friends and associates.
