  • Weekday Communion

    Holy Communion is now held weekly in St Ben’s on Fridays at 10am. Please join us if you can.

    St John’s also has a weekly Holy Communion service on Wednesdays at 10am.

  • Saturday Afternoon Tea and Board Games

    Following the popularity of the Summer Saturday Afternoon Cream Teas in July and August, the church is now opening from 2pm to 4pm on Saturday afternoons. It’s a time for everyone to enjoy sitting around drinking tea or coffee and eating cake, with the opportunity of playing cards or board games, doing jigsaws or just chatting.
