About Us

Are you new to the church or the area? If so, you are very welcome! Please do check out our New to Church page to get all the information about what goes on at our church.

We are a dynamic church made up of people from all walks of life, ages and different nations. We love to see new people and are confident that you will feel right at home. Our Sunday mornings begin with a warm welcome and an invitation to join us in celebrating the good news about Jesus Christ. Our worship is vibrant and lively as we lift up His name together. We expect God to meet with us and speak to us. 
 
We have been very active in our local community since this church was planted in 1934, working alongside other agencies and running our own projects in order to express the love of God in a practical way.
