Website: You’ll find everything you want to know about us here – though we’d prefer to welcome you face-to-face. The about us page describes the various activities we run. 
For reviews and photos visit the archive.

Ourselves: We’re people without a parish, so we come together from all over. We’re lively, busy and active in the community; we sing loudly and we’re a melting pot of ideas. Ours is a time of change and we want to extend our activities and try new things – we need more people to help us do so. 

Ministers: We’re lucky to have a talented team of ministers and local preachers committed to our future.
We have just welcomed our new minister, Reverend Tina Brooker.

Palm Sunday service 24th March 2024

The two donkeys, Storm and Bertram, arrived in good time and were obviously thrilled by the occasion and the fuss – they led the procession with no sign of stubbornness and their only annoyance was having to get into their van to go back home.

Bertram and Storm 

The congregation was just short of 120. As it was a parade service, we welcomed some of our friends from other churches. We did a fair job recreating the very odd circumstances of the original Palm Sunday. We made some up-market palms (master-minded by Penny), sang an acclamation, heard about the tribulations of the donkey keeper and set off in a procession following the donkeys to the car park. There was, of course, a lot of shouting ‘Hosanna!’

We were reminded that the same crowd that had cheered Jesus on was to be the one that screamed for him to be crucified a few days later. We were also reminded that they asked the question ‘Who is this person?’ – we shall be trying to answer the question ‘Who is Jesus?’ in our services in May.


Palm Sunday took place in a party atmosphere, so we scoffed donuts when we had finished.

Here's some we made earlier
