Introduction to parish

We try and see our mission as being an expression of the love, the ministry and the person of Jesus to the people of our area, in the way we live, in the things we do and in the things we say.

Details of the Church

Internal photoBuilt: 1959
Listing: not listed

This church is built within the ruined walls of an earlier, possibly Victorian, church bombed during World War 2, using what may have been parts of the transept and chancel walls. It consists of a simple rectangular nave and chancel orientated north to south, with two separate extensions attached to the east wall forming the vestry and a library. A church hall forms an extension to the west in what may have been the former nave. The main entrance to the church is shared with the church hall on the south side via a common lobby.
