O Lord our God, make us watchful and keep us faithful as we await the coming of your Son our Lord; that, when he shall appear, he may not find us sleeping in sin but active in his service and joyful in his praise; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Almighty God, as your kingdom dawns, turn us from the darkness of sin to the light of holiness, that we may be ready to meet you in our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

There are normally four services on a Sunday.

The 9.00 Communion at the Parish Church offers a quieter and more reflective start to the day. Lasting around 55 minutes, it is based around more traditional texts, with hymns, organ, the choir and a shorter talk.

The 10.30 services at the Parish Church and St Martin's are family-friendly and contemporary in style. With more extensive teaching, provision for children and teens and a crèche.

The 6.30 service at the Parish Church is our most informal service but has a strong focus on teaching and worship. The pattern normally includes Communion once a month.

cornerstone 1Cornerstone Coffee Shop is open 10 a.m. - 12 noon on Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the Parish Hall. Cornerstone Café is open 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Thursdays.

Both provide a great place to relax, chat, meet old friends and make new ones. Why not drop in for a drink and a snack or, on Thursdays, a light lunch? You're sure of a warm welcome.

Welcome boardThe Parish Church is open daily; normally from about 9 o'clock until about 4.30 in winter (5.30 or later during the summer) and we welcome visitors.

The tower is open at Easter, then from Monday 4th May until the end of October half-term, normally from 10.30-4.30 Monday to Friday and 11.00-3.00 on Saturday, except when the church is in use for weddings, funerals and other services etc.  The tower is not open on Sundays. Stewards are on duty when the tower is open (and, occasionally, at other times) to answer questions and to help you make the most of your visit. The chapel is always available for private prayer and reflection and has a range of interactive prayer ideas to help you take advantage of this opportunity to reflect and pray. The whole church is accessible, except for the tower, the only access to which is a steep, narrow, spiral, stone stair with more than 150 steps.
