Our services are live streamed every Sunday morning at 10am from our Church building, and can be viewed via our Youtube channel.

This service is an informal chance to worship together, hear from God's word and spend time as a family, in His Presence.

We are no longer asking people to 'save a seat' ahead of our services. Masks are now optional inside the building and we would encourage you to do so if that makes you feel more comfortable.

We also host a prayer and worship service called 'Dwell' every Sunday evening at 6pm, during term time. A time to Dwell in Gods presence, worship Him and listen to His voice.



We have a new model of meeting together midweek to grow deeper in our faith in Jesus, and our relationships with one another, theses are called 'Connect' and 'Growth' groups. for more information on these groups check out our 'Connect Groups' page.
