We are temporarily worshipping online on Sundays (10.30am) and meeting online on Tuesdays for prayer (11:00) and chat (11.30am). Anyone is also able to join the service (live) on Zoom. Just e-mail the minister for details!

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.
About six times a year we worship together with the Temple Methodist Church, sometimes at their building in Upper High Street, also at 10:30 am, and sometimes also with St John’s parish church.

Most Tuesdays at 12noon for half an hour 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.

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

On the death of the Duke of Edinburgh

O God, our rock and our redeemer,
we give thanks for your servant Philip.We thank you for his long life,
for his dedicated support of his wife in her vocation as Queen,and for his service to commonwealth and nation.

We thank you for the Duke of Edinburgh award,
for the work of the World Wide Fund for Nature
and for so many causes he inspired and supported.

We rejoice that he lived and shared
the faith we hold,
and that, by your grace,
he survived danger and threat.

We pray for those who will miss him most deeply,
that they may find comfort and hope.

We celebrate and affirm our faith
that death is defeated,
that new life awaits your children,
and that creation is renewed in Christ.

And, in this day and time, we pray,
as we are always glad to pray,
may your Kingdom come. Amen.
