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.

Prayer for this time

Loving Jesus,
who touched the sick,
who blessed those named unclean,
who let Mary touch you with her tears,
and whose own body was pierced by the nails,
come and be with us now in these times.
When we have to be untouchable to one another for a time,
show us how to love.
When bodies and souls are deeply wounded,
help us to heal one another.
When we long for communion with each other
give us patience to wait and endure.
Bind us as your body when we must be separated,
and bring the world to itself again so that life in all its fullness may return.

Amen.
