Forecourt development project
We have been granted planning permission to redevelop the church forecourt to make it a more attractive space, to provide public seating and to enhance the prominence and significance of the church’s main entrance, giving it a more vibrant and visible frontage.

Our new pastoral assistants

The Anglican Rosary: praying with beads
Praying with beads is a very simple way of finding a rhythm and creating space for personal prayer wherever you are. The Anglican rosary is inspired by the traditional rosary but is more flexible and adaptable to the seasons of the Church’s calendar.
