Parish Away churchyard (2)

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!   A typical service will have hymns, prayers (including prayer for local and national affairs), and a talk from one of our leaders on the Bible passage linked to our current theme. Most services have a voluntary collection. There is opportunity for private prayer, or prayer 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, and join their group after around 10 minutes. On a first visit, 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 typically lasts about an hour.
