Welcome

You Matter To God

You Matter To Us

 

 

 

 

 

We are two church communities in adjoining villages south of Ripon. Between our churches we offer a variety of worship opportunities and styles. You can find out about our services on the Worship page.

Both of our churches are open on weekdays, usually from 9.30-3.30pm, and you are very welcome to come in and have a look around or just sit and enjoy the peace and quiet or join us for one of our services.

If you are wanting to have a christening or a wedding; or are in the sad position of having to plan a funeral, do look at the Life Events page and then contact us.

Wherever you are on your journey of faith we really look forward to welcoming you.

Rev. Sheila Murray
