Our Mission

In fellowship with GOD and one another, we aim to be:

  • A church where GOD through JESUS CHRIST is at the centre of all we seek to be and to do.
  • A church that, through prayer and the scriptures, is open to the guidance and power of the HOLY SPIRIT and acknowledges its need of GOD’s grace.
  • A church that comes together to worship, incorporating all ages, experience and knowledge.
  • A church whose worship encourages a sense of belonging to GOD and to one another, and affirms the worth and value of each individual.
  • A church that provides CHRISTIAN education and ministry appropriate to different ages, experience and knowledge.
  • A church that enables each member to develop and use their natural and spiritual gifts.
  • A church that lives and shares its faith so that others may come to the knowledge of the love of CHRIST.
  • A church that serves and influences the life of the local community.
  • A church that has a vision to support and pray for CHRISTIAN mission world-wide.
  • A church that co-operates with others to share practical care and love.

The church regularly receives enquiries from relatives seeking their ancestors.

We also have a number of gravestones, some of which are listed monuments, revealing a fascinating insight into our local history.
