Who are we

Who are we

We are a group of people who gather together to worship God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

We do this in various ways:

Gathering together on a Sunday Morning for corporate worship.

Meeting in small groups to go deeper into what it means to be a follower of Chirst.

Popping in to TReats coffee shop to chill out and refresh.

Creating various special events to gather in various ways throughout the year.

The safeguarding and protection of all children and adults at risk

The establishment of a loving church environment which is safe and caring for all people and where the dignity of each person is respected

Working with statutory agencies, voluntary organisations and other churches.

Carefully select and train all those with any responsibility within the Church, in line with Safer Recruitment principles, including the use of Disclosure and Barring checks.

Respond without delay to every concern, incident or complaint which suggests that a child or adult has been harmed, or is at risk of harm, cooperating with the police and local authority in any investigation.

Seek to work with anyone who has suffered abuse, developing with them an appropriate ministry of informed pastoral care.

Review our safeguarding policy, practices and procedures annually. Follow legislation, guidance and recognised good practice.
