Important Update.

Due to the unprecedented concerns about coronavirus we have taken the precaution of suspending ALL formal services until further notice. We are very sorry that this measure includes the planned Pirates holiday club which has been cancelled.

We have produced a virtual Sunday service available under the Latest posts (on the top menu ribbon). The sermon element is also available separately under the archived sermon section below or via Our Services (on the top menu ribbon). 

If you missed Mark’s Mothering Sunday sermon please scroll down to the  sermon section below and follow the link there to the sermon series.
