We are currently meeting for our online service every Sunday at 10am. 

This service is accessible for all ages and stages in your faith journey. So whether you've been coming to the Lantern church for 10 years or have never been to a church service before in your life, why not grab a cuppa, and we would love you to join us each week, for worship, prayer and a short talk! We also have Kids church online, for your kids to watch during our talk slot.


Unfortunately due to Covid many of our midweek gatherings and events aren't running for the foreseeable future. But why not use this time as an opportunity to build community with one another: why not watch the Lantern Online with one other household, have someone round for dinner, go for walks together, pray for and with one another and spend some real quality time together! 


Why not check out our Facebook page where host evening prayer slots, Mon - Fri at 8pm. 

And morning prayer every Thursday at 7am.

We also host a prayer and worship service 'Dwell' every Sunday evening at 6pm, during term time. 


Every week during term times we have multiple 

Life groups that meet in one another's homes.  This is chance to grow together, dig deeper into what we hear on a Sunday and time to worship and pray together. If you aren't already part of a Life group do get in touch.

However if you are new to or exploring the idea of faith and want to know more, then why not try out Alpha Online.

Ensuring we have a safe and transparent way of working is very important to us. Please see our Safeguarding section for more information on how we keep all our church members, visitors, volunteers and staff safe, or if you have any Safeguarding questions or concerns.
