We will be continuing to hold our Sunday Services online throughout the summer, to ensure that we can continue to keep our congregations, staff and volunteers safe.

Our online services happen every Sunday, with chat available from 10:15am, and our service beginning at 10:30am. In our online services you'll find interactive chat, worship, a preach and communion.

Our Story

Our church began its life in the early 1950s when Percy Morgan started the church. By 1967 the church had outgrown the various locations they met in, and purchased land for it’s first permanent home.

In 2005, Tim and Angela Price joined as the senior leaders and the church grew in numbers, which resulted in a move to a larger building in 2013, to its current home, a repurposed Methodist church. Since then, our church has established a community nursery school and foodbank.

In 2019, we began exploring joining the Festival Church family, and in 2020, we did! We can't wait to see what's in store for the next part of our journey!
