Am I welcome to take communion?

Holy Communion is a memorial of the last supper, that meal which Jesus celebrated with his close followers just before his death. So this meal, which we also call the Lord’s Supper. The morsel of bread and sip of wine cannot keep us from hunger but it brings with it the whole sustaining power of God.

We welcome anyone who has been baptised to join us in communion, however much you are struggling, or feel you are failing, in following Jesus, we warmly welcome you.

If you aren’t sure about participating, or have no idea what this is all about please feel free to come forward, and we will be delighted to pray for God’s blessing to be with you. Our Vicar or clergy will be very happy to have a chat.


Whether you are rejoicing or dreading the coming of Christmas, we welcome you to worship with us.

With God, Jesus tells us, all things are possible. That’s a hard thing to hear at some times of our life. But we hold it to be true, even when we do not feel it to be so. Traditionally this third week has been a time to remember the deep and true joy which can only be truly exuberant when we experience the faithfulness of God.

Come wait with us for the day when Jesus returns in power to make the world a place where there is no more crying, no more pain, and where justice is done.

If you want to know more about what it means to have hope in Jesus, or simply to talk about the stresses and strains of Advent we are here to help.
