Our church organ

Mr Cogez has been looking after our organ for many years: he's coming today to make sure everything is ready for Sunday's service.
Last year, we produced a short video, so in case you missed it, here's another chance to watch it
Getting the organ ready for Christmas

Follow our Advent Star

Once again, we are inviting everyone to decorate a star this Advent, adding your own picture or prayer.

Christmas bakes

If you have pre-ordered, you can collect your items after the service, they'll be ready for you.
If not, we will have mulled wine, mince pies, chutney and shortbread for sale although not on the same scale as in previous years, due to space restrictions.

How to win a prize!

The draw will be taking place after the service on Sunday, and we have some lovely prizes.
A few tickets are still available at church
