There's lots to help with on Sundays to make sure everyone feels welcome and all runs smoothly. From handing out books, greeting visitors, operating the sound system, caring for church linens, being a server, leading Junior church, taking the collection and serving coffee – our team does a truly great job!

So what’s a home group? Put simply, they’re small groups of around 6-10 people who get together – usually in someone’s home or a local coffee shop – to grow their relationship with God through bible study and lively discussion. Each group is diverse and engaging, setting its own format and time to meet. Friendship and refreshments are guaranteed! To join a Home Group contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Sharing the love and compassion of God in the wider community – especially with those who are vulnerable and marginalised is at the heart of our life as Christians.

Church members participate with residents in a dementia-friendly service led by the Vicar once a month on a Wednesday afternoon. Plus a cup of tea!
We warmly welcome local schools – Ernest Bevin College, Finton House and Beatrix Potter primary for educational and inter-generational activities, and to perform in concerts and festivals.
Your giving counts!
In the last year this has never been so true. While we have plans to become an essential community hub in the future, our lovely Victorian Church still needs tender loving care on a daily basis.
This year we have replaced the erratic and noisy heating system with a new version that heats the space quickly and creates a warm welcome at services and events. Several leaky roof spaces have been repaired and now the kitchen and flower room are safe to enter without wellingtons and umbrella! Pews have been lifted and fitted with wheels to help us create flexible spaces for worship. Accessibility is a top priority for 2020 and we are fundraising for an accessible WC and tea making facilities at the south east corner of the church.
We can’t thank you enough for your generosity!
