A big thank you goes to everyone who provided cake and supported Café to make the recent Macmillan Coffee morning such a success. Thanks also to the Cafe team who worked so hard in the kitchen and serving the customers at 11 tables instead of the normal 9!! We raised an amazing total of £350 for such a good and important cause.
At our Harvest Service this year we welcomed Philip Nalpanis from A Rocha UK, our Eco Church partner. Listen to his talk ‘Becoming Better Stewards’ on how we can take better care of God’s creation. MP3 format.

On Sundays, we have 2 services each week 9 am and 10.30 am. Then on the second Sunday of the month at 4 pm, we have Messy Church.  During the week we also run a Holy Communion service which is on the second Wednesday of the month at 10 am. We look forward to welcoming you at one of these services and getting to know you. Looking for our news sheets? You can find them here
