 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 

Loving God, at this time of uncertainty and isolation open our eyes to your unending mercy and faithfulness, and to your power for which nothing is impossible. Enable us to celebrate the birth of your Son with joy even in dark times, for he is our light in the darkness and our hope for the future. Amen
