Our team of four churches offers hosts a wide range of community events including weddings, concerts, U3A, sport and children's groups.
Our churches offer a range of facilities which support local communities and are available for hire. These are used by community groups as diverse as Choirs and Martial Arts clubs but also make great conference venues.
Availability (updated 13th July 2020)
Currently we are not taking bookings for events and activities in 2020. However we are exploring how we may reopen our facilities so do enquire. We will prioritise re starting our previous regular facility users first and will be in contact with existing users once we are ready to reopen.

The welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults is an absolute priority for us. Safeguarding shows God's love in action and in churches demonstrates safety and security, where abuse and mistreatment of others is not tolerated.
