Walk, Pause and Pray

Our beautiful, peaceful churchyard is always open for you to come and reflect, pray and also to spend time remembering those you love who have gone to glory but remain always in your hearts.

Please do come anytime and use the space to bring your thoughts, worries and cares to the God of love who cares for us all.

There is a guided prayer walk leaflet available on the gate if you would like to use that as well.

Please keep dogs on a lead at all times and please keep social distancing.

Prayer & Bible Study

Our prayer groups meet weekly and bi-weekly throughout the year on Zoom. Over Advent and Lent these groups also include bible study material which helps us to focus on these important seasons.  We intend to expand these bible study sessions in future to cover other times of the year.  You are always welcome to join us. Contact Barbara for further details.
