We are always glad to hear from you, including any concerns for yourself or others, or prayer requests. As well as this website we also have a Facebook page.

We are a community of six churches each with its own weekly pattern of services and activities. Our shared life is very important to us and we meet regularly to worship, socialise and pray together.  We hope that we are an inclusive and welcoming community which seeks to serve the needs of everyone.

Within these pages you will find information about our services, social events, churches and opportunities to meet, learn, pray and ask questions. Please note some of this information relates to how things were before coronavirus!  There are many different groups and activities to be involved with. We hope that you can find what you are looking for.  If not, please contact one of the ministry team or churchwardens, or our Mission Community Administrator.

Do come and find out more about us – you will be most welcome.

So come,
You who have much faith, and you who have little.
You who have come often, and you who have stayed away.
You who have tried to follow, you who have failed.
You whose love flickers faint, you whose love burns strong.
Come not because I invite you, come because Jesus invites you,
Bids you welcome, calls your name.

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
