Thinking about our life today as a Church Community and planning for the future is all part of the Mission Action Planning (MAP) process. As part of our work we have put together this statement which we hope brings together the Mission and Vision we all share in.

We seek to be a mission driven Church, sharing God's love in order to serv e the whole community: Endeavouring to support, cherish, nurture, educate, enlighten and facilitate our personal growth and by doing so introduce others to Christ and the Christian Faith.

The Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham - Every Saturday there is an opportunity to take some time out in Church from 10:00am onwards. There is a short prayer service focussing on intercession for the world, healing and the needs of many. On the last Saturday of the monthg we have an Eucharist followed by a breakfast of coffee and croissant. Here we celeberate our fellowship with the Anglican Shrine at Walsingham and it's prayer ministry.
