"We are an active church that seeks to discover God at work in our
lives and in the lives of others.
Through worship, learning, caring, service and in sharing the love
of Jesus, we look to become His disciples. We are active as
Christians in the local community and many groups find a home in our
wonderful modern premises.
Whether you are visiting us through the website or at the church
itself, I pray that you will glimpse something of the life we share
in Christ, and that you may share that life too."

Climate Changes Everything
Now is the time to act
One World Week prompts us to share understanding about some of the global issues that affect us all and to recognise we can all make a difference.
OWW is building on last year's theme so, inspired by climate activist, Greta Thunberg, we shall be focussing on the urgency for action. We need to act now if we are to keep climate change within limits that allow the planet's systems to continue to support its diversity of plants and animals, including humans, and their projected populations.
It is becoming clear that our current values system and associated economic system make it difficult to achieve the rapid and profound changes necessary to safeguard the future of our children. This is why, as Greta Thunberg has said, ‘Everything needs to change - and it needs to start today’.
In OWW we want to help people acknowledge the urgency for change and offer ideas of actions they can take personally, as communities and as national and global citizens. It is vital that we do not drive people to despair but, instead, inspire people to act.
"Once we start to act hope is everywhere" says Greta Thunberg.
