 All about our services



As our name suggests we are a union of two churches and our roots lie in both the Methodist Church and United Reformed Church traditions. However, people from other traditions have also found their home here. 

As a Christian community we welcome everyone because God loves all people. We value our diversity.  Whatever our age, background, culture, gender or race, we each have something special to share with others. 

We try to provide a programme of work, worship and witness that is family-friendly and embracing of all ages. Our aim is to provide the conditions in which faith can come alive and grow.

 Everyday Prayer* 

We are not a people of fear

We are people of courage

We are not people who protect our own safety

We are people who protect our neighbour's safety

We are not people of greed

We are people of generosity

We are your people of God

Giving and loving

Wherever we are

Whatever it costs

For as long as it takes

Wherever you call us
