This church’s outstanding feature is its warm, friendly atmosphere. It is an open, welcoming Church offering modern interactive worship for all ages. There is a mixed age range and frequent all-age-worship services, always with enthusiastic hymn-singing. There are now only a few children who attend regularly, but all who come are made very welcome.
The church actively supports a mission-school and orphanage in Borneo, also a schoolgirl in Uganda. Money is raised regularly for Christian Aid, Action for Children and a local charity E A C H, amongst other causes.
