Vision Statement:

  • To know Christ and make him known through a caring sustainable and growing Christian presence in our community.


  • Loyal congregation.
  • Church building with great potential for development.
  • Good location of the church in the village.
  • Successful and growing children’s service (Tea Service). Excellent relationship with village uniformed.

Put the church at the heart of village life – Develop the cafe within the church building and organize events linking church and village community. Grow the congregation numerically and spiritually. Encourage fringe towards a Christian commintment. Nurture new groups (such as Knit1Pray1, Junction Club, ByteSize, Children’s Choir) and develop Tiny Tots. Start Youth work which is at present non-existent. Increase financial giving.
