As usual, small groups are our first point of pastoral care. Our small groups continue to meet, mostly online but increasingly in-person in whatever ways adhere to the Government’s current advice.

Some groups meet for coffee and chat before or after our Sunday services, and all meet during the week as well.
You can still join a small group at this time: visit our Small Groups page or contact Chris Rawson for more information.Email Chris
