Caring churches where all are welcome to know the peace and love of God

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

This week (18 - 25 January) is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. With this in mind the Methodist Church is organising three Prayer meetings via Zoom, led by local church leaders.


If you wanted to attend any sessions, you would be very welcome.

Service update

As a result of the new national lockdown announced on 4 January our churches will be closed until further notice.

Infection rates are very high, and the only way we can help to protect you, is to remain closed for a while. However, as well as our online services we are organising ways to stay connected via the internet, including a monthly parish quiz on Wednesday nights, and a bible study, 'Living with the Psalms', which runs through January and February.

Contact the Parish Office if you would like to join the quiz.

Living with the Psalms

From January 2021, the Churches Together team are inviting you to join an online bible study based on John Bell’s book, ‘Living with the Psalms’.

Many have found consolation through the words of the Psalms and this ancient poetry is still relevant today.

All are welcome.

However, the Christian season of Advent, running through December, reminds us that as nature slows down, so we can too...

Our environmental policy

Our planet is facing a dramatic change in climate, which according to scientists the world over is a result of human action over the last 150 years, predominantly through the burning of fossil fuels to create energy.


As Christians we have a responsibility to take care of God's creation and the Parish Environmental Policy declares our commitment to do just that.

The church really helps me put life in perspective, particularly when I've had a challenging week.
