Return to our church building – health assessment

It would be lovely to see everyone back in the church building, but please don’t come if you don’t feel it is right for you.

Please check this Health Assessment to decide if it is wise for you to attend church at this time. If you decide to attend, please also read our guidelines for attending church.

Don’t worry if you decide to stay at home; the website services will continue in the meantime.

Online Bible study

Have you ever wondered what our online Bible Study sessions are like?

Take a look at this short clip, and you’ll get an idea.

We read some of the Bible, in short sections, discuss questions (which you get in advance) and learn from each other. No one is an expert, and everyone’s answers and ideas are welcomed.

If you want to know, why not speak to someone you recognise in this picture.

Christian Aid Week

Each year, Christian Aid Week brings together tens of thousands of committed volunteers across Britain and Ireland to raise millions of pounds in support of people living in poverty, injustice and inequality across the world.

Now, more so than ever, Christian Aid Week provides an important opportunity to celebrate and share the life-saving work that brings hope to people the world over.

In 2019 Christian Aid Week raised over £7.5m through a combination of church collections, house-to-house, delivery-only fundraising and events such as Big Brekkies.

This year, many Christian Aid supporters will have already dedicated a significant amount of their time and energy planning these initiatives.

Not surprisingly, the coronavirus situation has meant that much of this usual fundraising cannot go ahead for Christian Aid Week 2020 (10-16 May).

If you can afford it, please make your Christian Aid donation online this year –
