We are an inclusive church and work without making judgments and in complete confidence, with people of all faiths, cultures, races, genders and sexual orientations. And we welcome the opportunity of sharing with you in your journey of faith. We would be delighted to help with Baptisms and Marriages, and we are also available to help support through Funerals and bereavement.
