Great news: the Church Centre renovations are almost complete. Watch this space for information on the official opening celebrations.
Please note that due to major refurbishment, the church hall will not be available for hire for approximately four months commencing the beginning of April. The church will continue to be used for Sunday services during this period; however, it will not be suitable for use as a wedding venue.
Please check back for updates on the building programme and remember that despite the look of our buildings, we are still open for God’s business!
The church AGM will be held on Sunday March 27th. Please attend as we plan our outreach and fundraising for the year.
