Church Services

And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.


1 Corinthians 2:13

Service Update

In order to help reduce the costs associated with heating two churches during the current energy crisis we are having more joint services over the next few months. The new schedule can be seen below. This is only temporary and the situation will be reviewed at the end of January. You can read more about this here. 

Sunday 27 November, 2022

Today is the first Sunday of Advent. Advent comes from the Latin “adventus”, meaning “coming”. It’s a period of preparation for Christians. So, what does “preparation” mean? Advent is a period of spiritual reflection in which Christians make themselves ready for the coming and birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. Celebrating Advent typically involves a season of prayer and repentance; some orthodox Christians will also include prolonged fasting! This is followed by anticipation, hope, and of course the joy of Christ’s coming.
