Dear friends,

The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Psalm 34:18

Oscar Cubitt

Please remember Alex, Rob and Natasha Cubitt and the rest of their family in your prayers, following the tragic death of Oscar in the Netherlands last week. It is heart breaking to lose your child / brother and all of our hearts go out to them at this time.

Upcoming Services

Join us this Thursday at 4:30pm for a service of Celtic Prayer and Taizé music to celebrate Ascension Day.
