We hold 8.15am Morning Prayer on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
On the second Tuesday of the month before Tuesday coffee we celebrate a short communion service.

All faiths are welcome to worship with us and any who would take communion in their own faiths can take communion in our services.  We encourage people of all ages to the communion rail for a blessing.
