Sunday Services

Our Sunday services are at 10am in the Church Building and 6.30pm in the All Saints' Centre. For further information about our services, see the Sunday Services page

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. There are disabled toilets at the back of church and in the All Saints' Centre. There is also an access ramp for ease of access to the Church and All Saints' Centre. For those who need it, we can provide you with a large print service sheet.

Getting Connected

Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out the Small Groups page to find out more.

Serving and Volunteering

One of the best ways to feel part of the church family is to become involved through service. We believe that every Christian has God given gifts that are to be used for the common good. If you want to get to serve on a team, click here to find out more.
