We are a Christian church in the protestant tradition with uncomplicated worship.

We believe that God’s way of sacrificial love, exemplified in Jesus, is a source of hope, a challenge to us all, and an impetus for reconciliation in 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.

A prayer

O God, who desires that each of us should flourish
and live in joy and peace,
let your love shine upon us like the sun,
that we may turn our faces to you
and grow in strength,
unfurling and unfolding in your sight,
that we may truly live and richly praise you,
now and always, Amen.
