Kath and Michael, our churchwardens

We welcome you to our parish website. We believe it offers a snapshot of a welcoming community, that takes seriously its calling to worship the living God and to live out that worship in the parish and town to which we belong. It is this understanding that lies behind our desire to continue proclaiming the love of Jesus in our community: our love for the living Lord encourages us to reach out to you, while our belief in his love for us is so transforming that we don't want to keep it to ourselves.

It may be that you have come to live in the area and want to join our community life. It may be that you are planning to visit for rest or business. It may be that you just happened across this website. Whichever applies to you, we hope you will have the opportunity to enjoy the life behind the snapshot, so that we may welcome you in the name of the Lord!

The Reverend Christopher Scargill

New Vicar Appointed

On Sunday 10 May 2014, our churchwardens, Kath and Michael, announced the appointment of our new vicar.

The Reverend Christopher Scargill is presently Senior Chaplain to the Anglican Chaplaincy of St Peter and St Paul at Torrevieja, near Alicante, Spain.

Mr Scargill's institution as vicar will take place on Thursday, 11 September 2014 at 7.30 pm.

Sunday 3 August 2014. The Revd Helen Hornby will be presiding at a service to mark 100 years since the start of the First World War. We are hoping to have displays of any war memorabilia which you may have. Please bring things in for us to display. During the service we are hoping to have the names of the fallen read out by various members of the congregation, including all age groups. We will be putting up lists nearer the time for you to add names of loved ones who died in that war. Any further help that anyone can give for this celebration service would be gratefully accepted.
