We have lots of social events together and all our activities are published on our weekly news sheet available to download from this website.

We are growing together as a group of churches and now have a United Benefice service each month on the first Sunday of the month at normal service times, this means that on those Sundays there is no Sunday service at two of our churches. This is held at each church in turn.
