REGULAR EVENTS AND WORSHIP 

We meet for worship every Sunday at 10.30 a.m. On at least one Sunday each month this is led by our Minister, Revd. Dr. Gillian Poucher.

On the other Sundays of each month worship is led by a visiting Minister or lay preacher, or the church’s own lay worship team.

On the first Sunday morning of each month and on Easter Sunday we celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion. . The United Reformed  Church believes that all who love the Lord Jesus Christ are welcome at the table, so there is an open invitation.





There are at least four All Age Worship Services each year. On other Sundays children leave the main service halfway through and enjoy their own activities in Junior Church.

We also have Cafe Style Worship three times a year, an informal time of worship, with coffee and biscuits available throughout.

COMMUNITY COFFEE MORNING AND MAYFLOWER ROOM EXHIBITION

We are open once a week for Community Coffee Morning, on Tuesday (9.30 a.m. - 12 noon) Our coffee mornings are well-supported by the wider community and over the years many friendships have been established. Why not join us for a cuppa if you are in town? (Entrance on Church Street).

The Mayflower Room is also open during this time and it accommodates an informative display of the local history of our Separatist ancestors who played an important role in the Mayflower Pilgrims voyage in 1620.  All ages welcome.
