Welcome! Whether you have just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find everything you want to know about our Church. There is always lots going on in the church whether it's on a Sunday morning, midweek, at the church building or out in the community.
Key information about the church... Where & when does the church meet?

What should I expect when I visit the church?
You will receive a warm welcome from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer any questions and direct you to where you need to go. The service is a family friendly Eucharist that lasts approximately 50 mins, with singing, readings from the Bible, prayers, a homily and Holy Communion.
Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions. We also have a not-to-be-missed bring and share lunch after the service on the 1st Sunday of each month.
What happens to the kids at church?
We have fantastic facilities and opportunities for children to take part in the life of the church.
Sunday Club in the Lady Chapel: Children are invited to join us at Sunday Club each Sunday during the 10.30am Family Service. We meet in the Lady Chapel just prior to the service starting. Children will join in with the welcoming Get To Know You song, followed by an engaging bible reading read by an older child, keeping in the same theme of that of Father Ross' sermon in the main Church. Joint prayers and songs will bring each Sunday Club to a close. The children will be asked to rejoin their parents / guardians in the main Church for Communion. The Lady Chapel is usually laid out with toys and books to keep younger children occupied and allow the main church to be a somewhat quieter place. The service can be listened to through our sound system and parents and children can come back in to the main church anytime. Children under 3 years of age must be accompanied by a parent/carer at all times.
Choir: Children 7 years+ are invited to join our choir and learn how to sing choral music. It's great fun!
Servers: Children 7 years+ can join our team of servers in the sanctuary every week. Full training will be given.
Alternatively, children can just sit beside a parent/carer
