Our buildings are important to us and our communities. But the church is not the building, it's the people! We are here for you, and we are praying for you, and we can offer prayers and support by phone, email and social media. Please do contact us if you'd like a chat or have a question about anything, or if you know of anyone who needs our support. 

We have two set times each day when we will be praying "together", each in our own home. Please do join us!
10am Morning Prayer
7pm Night Prayer
You can find the words for Morning and Night Prayer 

And some other prayers for you to use at home here

Support from MIND if you're feeling anxious or low here

We hope you will find what you are looking for on our website - if not, please do get in touch.
