We currently have between 70 and 90 people, including a number of children, worshiping together on a Sunday morning. There are groups for children, apart from on the first Sunday of the month when we all worship together.

We sing a mix of contemporary worship songs and traditional hymns, led by a music group on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month and accompanied by the organ on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month.

Afterwards, we stay for coffee and chat.
