We are committed to serving our communities and are engaged in all sorts of differing ways across the parish.
The times of services are listed to the right of the home page, and as growing churches we are always looking to welcome people to our services and to invite others into a deepening relationship with the Good News.
As William Temple put it,
To evangelize is so to present Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit, that all shall come to put their trust in God through Him, to accept Him as their Saviour, and serve Him as their King in the fellowship of His church.
Giving is just not about money. The Gospels challenges us to be generous in every aspect of our lives. Generosity is also about offering hospitality, giving our time and using our skills in the service of others. And not just in our churches, but also in homes, our workplaces and communities - well beyond our families and friends. Click for more information.
