In the long seasonal period from Advent to Pentecost we have celebrated the life of Jesus. Now, in the Sundays after Trinity, aided by the Holy Spirit, we study his life, his teachings and healings. We seek to discern how God calls us to live our own lives, in conformity with the Kingdom of Heaven, revealed through his Son. 

Our churches aspire to be the church in every place, offering regular worship and other activities for the benefit of the communities in which they work.

Each Sunday, we offer a variety of different services, led by different ministers and lay teams, to suit a variety of spiritual needs and preferences.
