One parish, two churches

Welcome to a friendly church at the heart of our local community.

Christ Church offers a wide range of services throughout the week, culminating in our traditional Eucharist complete with incense, bells and choir. St Mary’s offers a more informal alternative with a choir.

We have lots of groups. Lots going on. And lots of ways to get involved. Old or young. Family, couple, or single. Committed. Undecided. Unconvinced. You’re welcome to join us.

So check out the service times, come along, and see what you think.
