 Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about our Church.

Some key information about the church...


Where & when does the church meet?

One parish, four churches: see the service details  - which includes parking!


What should I expect when I visit a service?

A warm welcome! Our Welcome Teams  will answer your questions and direct you. A typical morning service will have opening hymns, prayers and notices, and a talk from one of our leaders on the Bible passage linked to our current theme. After prayer for local and international affairs there is a voluntary collection and the service ends with hymns/praise. There is opportunity for private prayer or to pray with one of our prayer ministry team at the end.
Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the services.


What happens to the children at church?

We have a fantastic programme at St Philip and St Peter & St Paul, for children and young people. Children stay with their parents at the start of the service. Someone will announce when the children need to go to their programme. You will need to go with your children and register them. 
For more information  please see Youth, Children & Family

How long will the service take?

A Morning Service (10 or 10.30am) typically takes just over an hour - or during C-19 restrictions, around 40 minutes.


Will I have to join in?

Not at all!
You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
