Our church has some beautiful Stained Glass Windows and thanks to the inspiration of Ray Quant, churchwarden, and the hard work of members in fundraising, it has recently been renovated and refurbished at a cost of over £120,000. A disabled access and Hearing Loop have been installed and so has our new project the loud-speaker system. All of our services are in English.

The previous Railway Crossing Gate route is still in use, but will not be manned for any Church services. Please use yellow phones if you are crossing there.
We have a small carpeted area where children can read and draw during the services and parents are welcome to go out into the Sunday School with their children until they feel confident to go out alone. Children are most welcome at any service. We have a Sunday School room in the church grounds called the Den. Sunday School is the same time as Sunday Services. The children are very welcome and we often help out in church services.
