About Us:

Our church goes back to before 1750 but relocated onto the Parkside estate in 1975. You’ll find it adjacent to St Vincent’s school. We’re an increasingly diverse community with more than 10 nationalities represented. Worship is informal and we aim for our time to be inclusive of children and those with special needs. We’re steadily growing with around 150 adults and children worshipping with us but through the week up to 400 people may pass through our church premises. You’re most welcome to drop in and find out more without any obligation.
