About Us

Are you new to the church or the area? If so, you are very welcome! Please do check out our New to Church page to get all the information about what goes on at our church.

We are a dynamic church made up of people from all walks of life and from different nations. We love to see new people and are confident that you will feel right at home. Our Sunday mornings begin with a warm welcome and an invitation to join us in celebrating the good news about Jesus Christ. Our worship is vibrant and lively as we lift up His name together. We expect God to meet with us and speak to us. We invite all those who baptised and love the Lord Jesus to share around His table for Holy Communion, when we break bread in remembrance of Him as he told us to do.

We are also very active in our local community working alongside other agencies and running our own projects in order to express the love of God in a practical way. 

Safeguarding
 

We are committed to the safeguarding of all children, young people, and adults when they are vulnerable. We aim to establish safe, caring communities which provide a loving environment where there is a culture of ‘informed vigilance’ as to the dangers of abuse.

  • We comply with the Safeguarding Policy statement of the Church of England.
  • Our Parish Safeguarding Policy is displayed in the Christian Centre
  • We accept the responsibilities of the church for all work with children, young people and adults when they are vulnerable carried out in the name of the church
  • We follow the procedures and guidance contained within the Canterbury Diocesan Safeguarding Guidelines in respect of DBS Disclosure checks, risk assessments and all other safeguarding practice and procedures.
  • We have appointed Coordinators to oversee the safeguarding of children, young people and adults when they are vulnerable.
