Enjoy browsing the rest of the website – there is loads here to explore.
And I look forward to seeing you soon,

Interested in coming to a service on Sunday?

You can read more on our Church Services page

Every Sunday we worship at 9am, 10.30am and 6.30pm. Each has it’s own distinct syle, but the main focus is always on worshipping Jesus!

We have two worship venues, our traditional church building, and the auditorium in St Michael’s Centre. Both are equally cherished. More info on where to find us on the location page.

The 10.30 Celebration is when we also have Sunday Club for Children and activities for young people.

Thy Kingdom Come Prayer Room

From Thursday 10 – Sunday 20 May, we will be responding to the Archbishop of Canterbury’s invitation to join in the global wave of prayer, petitioning God and saying: ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.

The Resources Room in St Michael’s Centre will be set up with various resources and prayer stations to help us pray.

You can book a slot between 6am-10pm each day by signing up online  (please note, not all days are visible on the first page  – please click the arrow!) or on the Sign-up sheet in the Foyer of St Michael’s Centre.

It’s exciting to think that we can do what the disciples did, as they prayed in the Upper Room after Jesus ascended into heaven and waited for the Spirit to come at Pentecost.

Joining with Christians across the world as we pray together here and now ‘Thy Kingdom come’.

Come and join in this global wave of prayer by booking a slot in the Prayer Room

You can also sign up to receive daily devotional emails  on the Thy Kingdom Come website

Director of Operations

We are seeking an experienced and talented Director to lead our Operations Team and work closely with the Senior Leadership Team to enable us to advance our vision. Lets make this much longer so hopefully it will get truncated after the first 55 word, but I’m not sure so lest see how it goes.

What happens if I add more words, does that get cut off or are all the test posts just short – Chris

Chris – I’ve remembered what I did it was to help me check for the truncation on the home page works which was 55 words and I have reduced to 20 in the coding. Here on the news page summary it doesn’t limit it at the moment but probably needs to although a higher number than 55 words. Then have a read more…  to click on. 

If you add a news article here and add the category ‘front page’ it will appear in the homepage. You can change the order in the post list filtered on category ‘front page’
