This is also the 1st Sunday of the Month – as well as the first of 2018 – and as such we serve tea/coffee and refreshments in the hall after the service to which all are encouraged to come through for. Crèche facilities are available every Sunday for the youngest of Children. We would be delighted to welcome you. Let us build a house where all can dwell – All are welcome in this place!

They are on sale each Sunday before or after worship. If you wish to reserve a copy, would like to order one for postal delivery or ask any questions please do get in touch – either through the contact button on the website or via our Facebook page.
