Worship

Worship lies at the heart of Christian life. It is in worship that we express our faith in story, song, and sacrament. It is through encountering God within worship that we are formed, and transformed, as God’s people.


Some of our services use the traditional language of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. Our 10am Sunday service follows the Church of England's Common Worship, with choir and familiar hymns. And at all of our services, you'll find welcoming people from all walks of life, in an open and affirming community.


Whether you're seeking to deepen your faith or are just curious about Christianity, you're invited to join us as we pray.
