Morning Service

Important Notice:

Sunday services and all group activities including the Friday drop-in cafe have been suspended. However, we are actively looking at ways to live-stream worship services to those who have access to this website. Please check back in a few days for more news on this.

We had planned to keep the church building open even though services are cancelled during the crisis. However, following the most recent advice, we have decided to close the church until further notice.

Anyone in need of pastoral care should telephone Rev Neil Meyer on 01467 632219.

Previous Orders of Service (for the last 12 weeks) can be found here.

Audio recordings from recent morning services can be found on the "Recent Events" page.

Messy Church

Messy Church takes place on the 3rd Sunday of every month (except July and August, when we take a summer break). It usually runs from 3.30 to 5.30 pm and supper is provided. Children and families of all ages are welcome.

The programme for 2020 is here

Note: Messy Church has been suspended until further notice.

Knitting for Nkhoma Hospital

Since the start of 2019, we have been able to send 7 banana boxes full of knitting, all lovingly produced by many willing hands in our community, to support the nursing staff working in Nkhoma hospital in Malawi. They send each new-born baby home with a knitted jumper and hat and give away around 150 sets of garments a month to their young patients on discharge so they need a good supply of clothes. There are approximately 50 garments per banana box so our knitters have been busy. We are truly blessed by having so many people who are so generous with their time and their talents.

Knitting patterns for jumpers, hats, dolls and teddies are available on the notice board in the Session Room in the church as well as on this site (below). Completed garments can be handed in to church or call 07974 938315, if you would like them collected. We would also be glad to receive any knitting wool surplus to your requirements to pass on to our keenest knitters.

The knitting patterns can be downloaded from these links:


If you are a visitor, thank you for worshipping with us.
Please complete a Contact Card and hand it to one of the ministers or an Office-Bearer.

If you are eligible (i.e. pay UK Income Tax) and don’t already gift aid your church offering, the Kirk Session would ask you to consider making use of the special envelopes for this purpose that are available at the end of the pews and in the entrance vestibule to the Church. Gift Aid increases the value of your offering by 25% at no extra cost to yourself. Please ensure that you complete the details on the envelope before placing it in the offering bag. Thank you.

Don’t forget to check out our Forthcoming Events page for details of what’s coming up in the near future.
