As a church we are here to worship God together, lead people to faith in Christ, enable spiritual growth, care for others, and encourage and build community. We believe that we are called to worship God, to love and serve Him and each other, and with that love to reach out to our community with a message of Christ.
We strive to be a warm, welcoming, loving church which attracts people to Christ and to worship by its very existence. With a vision of being a ‘Seven Days A Week’ church we offer time, Christian contact and a unique space for all.
The church dates back to the beginning of the twentieth century, having been opened on Wednesday, November 27th 1901. It has been a place of faithful Christian witness and service to the community since that time. The building itself has seen several transformations over the years. Today we have a modern multi-purpose building which is open seven days each week, also being available for private hire [further information].
