    They work to support each other and share the same vicar, Rev. Joe Heaton. You can contact him or the Parish Office.  We are home to a large, friendly and diverse group of Christians that aim to be


    • warm and accepting,

    • child friendly,

    • vibrant, reflective and relevant in worship,

    • thoughtful in our faith,

    • serving the wider world.


    Sunday worship lasts about an hour. Children and Young People will often meet in their own groups and join with adults for Communion.  For details of our service times please click here.


    All the churches are open daily for prayer, peace and reflection.
