Our vision as Christians is to continue to develop as a welcoming community of faith, sharing God's love in worship, spirituality, word and deed and seeking to respond to the needs of the people of the village and wider community in which we are an active presence and partner
Join us for coffee after our service on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month
Does this community need a sanctuary for Worship, holding Baptisms, Weddings, and Funerals in the centre of this beautiful rural setting?
Generations of families have given loyal and unstinting service in many varied ways to promote and ensure its future and there are still dedicated parishioners committed to providing all that is necessary for the promotion of God’s Kingdom in our village.
We look for fresh ideas and stimulus to encourage people to join us, not only in our Sunday Worship but in all events that contribute to the life of the Church.
We need a new generation, with new ideas for making the Church more accessible and refreshing in its appeal to everyone in our community.

If someone has not been to Church for a while , then they sometimes are unsure about what to expect.
Our take up is mostly volunteers, parents and young children, but Messy Church is for all ages.
We would encourage anyone to stop by on the second Saturday of the month, even if it just for a cup of tea or coffee and to have a look at what we are doing.
We are very informal and love people to you to join in all the activities or be creative in a different way. We have lots of resources that you can try your hand to. Wear comfortable clothes and don’t think you have to dress up. We don’t!
To see what we have been doing previously, click here or click the tab above.
We really hope you can join us. Our next meeting is Good Friday 13th July

Café Church takes place in Church on the 4th Sunday.

We then relate the topic to the bible, a short prayer time with a song. Please come along, it is very informal. Next Cafe@Church is Sunday 25th August
