Events and Notices


Please read the notices of change to the left.

Our activities will carry on as usual in the months ahead.


The parish plans to expand our
current church facilities to achieve
the following goals:

meet the needs
of the Anglican community in our
area; and provide additional space
for parish activities.
The Diocesan wide stewardship
initiative, Growing in Faith Together
(GIFT), will help us to achieve our
goals. This fundraising program
invites each of us to make a pledge
to our Diocese and our parish. The
money our parish raises will
support out expansion plan.


What is Messy Church?

Messy Church is one church's attempt to be church for families who might want to belong to their local church and bring up their children as Christians but can't cope with the traditional Sunday morning church services.

It's a once-a-month time of creativity, worship and eating together.
