We would be delighted if you could join us at any or all of our services running up to Christmas.  We hope this wonderful season of love and joy will fill your hearts with the desire and yearning to learn more about God and all He has to offer you.  He sent His only Son to us as a guide and help to us if we give our lives to Him.  In a world that can be so hard to understand these days, come and find out just what a priceless gift God has given us in His Son, Jesus Christ, which we celebrate each Christmas Day.

We are a friendly and welcoming church, and look forward to seeing you.  Bring members of your family and invite your friends - all will be made most welcome.
