You may have heard it said that:
"The church is the people, not the building"
Well, it’s true. But our physical building has served us well in a variety of ways for many years and we are fortunate to have it.
Most people tend to associate a Sunday morning church service with the building; it’s really an amazing thing that we are free and able to gather together to worship. But our building is used for a multitude of other things too: including a pre-school, our offices, work with children, young people, old people, poor people and rich people, bible study groups, film nights, community events, hustings, weddings and funerals and more besides.
It gives us a place to gather together, in person, to see and hear and listen to each other. If the Covid pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we’re better off together. If you’re able to, please come and find us. We’d love to meet you.
