Will you lead us onward on our journey with God?

 We are a small parish with a big heart looking for you to lead us onward in our journey to know and share the good news of the Gospel. Our recent/long period of interregnum has been a time of spiritual discernment: a time when the refiner's fire has helped us to clarify our way forward.

 Our committed group of faithful Christians is active in promoting social justice and deeply rooted in faith. We enjoy a mix of traditional and contemporary music woven throughout our Anglican liturgy.

 Our parishioners live our faith through friendship and fellowship with one another and to the wider community. We are practical and are often busy cooking and delivering meals or offering our pastoral support to those in need.

 We are ready to welcome a full time Vicar for a minimum of three years to build on our foundations, to lead us in reaching out to the wider community, and help us grow through mentoring, nurturing, and encouraging our parish as we worship and fellowship together
