What We Believe

We believe and trust in one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus is God's son and this belief is at the heart of our faith.


Questions about Faith? Can we help?

We all have questions about life, faith and Jesus and sometimes finding the answers can be hard. Remember, there is no such thing as a silly question so if you would like to discuss this with us please get in touch using the details on the Life, Faith. Jesus card and a member of our clergy team will be in touch with you or please contact us using the 'Drop us a line'/Email form.

Sermon Central


Catch up with the latest sermons on our sermons blog, hosted by Wordpress.

We will be adding up to date sermons very soon!



As a parish we are lucky to have 3 very important churches each well known for very different reasons. All of our buildings require a lot of maintenance and we have been very lucky to have  recently received help from The Heritage Lottery Fund Grant at St. Andrew's for  the Bell Tower restoration.  We would love your support to help us maintain these prestigious buildings for future generations. 

We are currently working on a donation/giving page and hope to have this available soon.
