We continue to shape what it is to worship and grow in faith together, here in our one parish and its six unique communities and historic places of worship.

Please do get in touch if you have any pastoral concerns, would like a home visit or home communion, or to arrange a baptism, wedding or funeral - or you might just like a chat about faith, life or a simple natter over a cup of tea!

Please do have a look at the variety of services on offer across the Parish and try out a style of worship that suits you. A warm welcome awaits you in our friendly churches.

Our Curate is Reverend Susan Manners.
