See every window of our 2016 Advent Calendar – by local artist Norman Steel – and images of the laser-lit, steel-drummed Paul Street Christmas Festival on Thursday 22nd December.

We are a congregation of people following Jesus Christ.
We hope that you will find here: worship where tradition and daily life meet in ways that can comfort and inspire you.

We want to be open, open to God and open to life,
because we believe that God’s love, for all people and for all creation, is the real hope for the world.

For the sake of the Gospel we will be:

  • a church that welcomes, whoever you are
  • a church that cares and responds with action
  • a church that works with others and plays its part in the community
  • a church that knows and shares the love of God
  • a church that is growing in faith and knowledge of God
  • a church full of hope and joy

Worship

The church meets for worship each Sunday at 10:30 am, normally in its building in Paul Street. Directions can be viewed here. The Lord’s Supper is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month.
Once a quarter we worship together with the Temple Methodist Church, sometimes at their building in Upper High Street, also at 10:30 am.

Most Tuesdays at 12.30pm till 1.00pm Café Style Worship is held in the Dora Cox room at the Paul Street church – entrance through main doors – as part of the informal ‘Oasis’ gathering. Hot drinks are served and people are invited to bring their own lunch.

Visitors are most welcome to worship with us at all times.

Salt and light

As the savour to the salt grain,
as the power to the light,
as the voice that brings me homeward
as the love that holds me tight,
So Lord, art thou to me.
