At present the road that runs on the far side beyond the pub car park is usually available. opposite the church.  Please do not park in the drive at the back of the church unless you require disabled access.

These meetings open to all Orthodox and non-Orthodox who wish to deepen their understanding of the faith.

On the Second Friday of each month there will be an Akathist service at 7pm. We hold a parish supper on the last Friday of each month, beginning at 7 pm with prayers, then confessions, a bring and share supper, and a group discussion about an aspect of our Faith. 

There is normally a parish lunch after the liturgy on the first Sunday of each month.
