Sunday at 7 pm

During term time we meet on Sunday evening where we enjoy meeting together, singing, praising God, reading scriptures and hearing a talk from God's word and learning how to apply that to our lives. Why not come along to our church building on Claypath to find out what it's like? We look forward to welcoming you and introducing you to our church family.

The first 7 pm service is on Sunday 25th September

Hope to see you soon,
