Welcome to our website 

Each Sunday we come together to worship God, learn about His love shown through Jesus, seek His strength for whatever we face in our daily lives and grow in faith.

During the week many Church members serve their neighbours and communities in a variety of ways – in Church activities, at work, at home or through charity-work.

You are welcome to join us at any of our regular Sunday Services or mid-week activities.

 

 

 

Rev Fiona Wilson and Richard Wilson
