STATEMENT
(5 - YEAR REVIEWABLE TENURE)
We are a caring congregation, who are looking for a minister who will lead us forward in faith and worship, and help us: -

In encouraging the young people within our organisations and the village to join with us at Church. As we see them as our future.

In visiting all the houses within the village, (including the new housing developments) and to encourage these people to join with us in worship.

Reach out to those people, especially the elderly and sick, who are in need of our help and pastoral care.

WORSHIP
Sunday worship consists of a morning service that commences at 10:30 a.m. and lasts approximately one hour.

The Sunday School is in Church for two hymns and the children's address, then adjourns to the large hall for further teaching.

A crèche is available for younger children and is held in the small hall.

The congregational music is from CH3 and a supplementary songbook, compiled by a group of Church members.

Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of March, June, September and December, with a morning service at 10:30 a.m. Followed by an evening service at 6:30 p.m. Communion is also held at the Sheltered Housing complex on the Wednesday following the Sunday Communion, at 1:00 p.m.

A bus operates locally on a Sunday to transport members to and from the morning service.

We enjoy a good relationship with St. Aloysius RC Church and at Christmas, we hold a joint carol service. This is held in both churches on alternate years.
