A Congregation of the Church of England

With our roots in the Anglican tradition, we aim to be a church where Christians from all backgrounds, as well as people exploring the faith, can feel at home.
Many comment on the warm and friendly atmosphere on Sundays, and enjoy the blending of old and new, traditional and contemporary.

We are part of
God's universal church
