Message from the Vicar

It's wonderful to welcome you to the website of these two churches, where I am very proud to be the vicar.

Streamed Worship


Although our services in both churches are once again in person, we continue to keep our Zoom services to enable more people to take part.

You are very welcome to join us by clicking on the link below.  

The regularly streamed services and events are as follows:

Morning Prayer - 9.00 a.m. on Tuesday, Friday & Saturday

(Morning Prayer on Wednesday and Thursday is said in our churches)

Sunday Mass - 10.30 a.m. (10.00 on the fifth Sunday of the month)

Midweek Eucharist - 10.30 a.m. on Wednesday

Our two churches not only have a vast amount of history between them, having stood witness to over five hundred years of history, they are also places of vision and hope for a future for the communities that they serve.

They are first and foremost churches; places where we meet to give glory to God, to share in His grace freely given to us, to hold in our prayers the cares and concerns of His world, and to welcome all who come to join us.

Through history, churches have been places of refuge, places of safety, places of love, and places of community.  We aim to continue this tradition in our two churches, and to be present in the communities that we serve, providing a constant invitation, welcome, support and love as we grow in our Christian faith and mission.

I hope that you find what you are looking for on this website, and whether you are interested in history, community activities, a wedding, a baptism, or joining us for one of our regular services, I hope that you find the invitation here and feel encouraged to come and meet us soon in person.

If you have any questions, please contact me by email, or click here for my other contact details, and I look forward to welcoming you soon.

With love in Christ,

Fr. Tim Stevens
