New Initiative for 2016

Commencing Sunday 10th January

  • 3-5pm - Crafts, singing, family based activities.
  • Come along and join inb the fun and get a hot meal into the bargain!


We are a musical fellowship with a broad range of musical mediums to enhance our worship.

  • We have a traditional brass band, both a senior band and a young people's band.
  • We have a traditional adult choir and junior choir and a community gospel choir.
  • We also have a contemporary music group featuring guitars, keyboard and percussion.

We do not worship music, but use this God given medium to draw us closer to him and spread the good news about his kingdom, remembering at all times that 'it's all about you Jesus!'
