The Congregational Church was built in 1776 by local builder Thomas Hewlett and the adjacent schoolroom was built 100 years later, there have been recent additions of a new room, entrance hall and disabled toilets. In other the church is well equipped with an efficient central heating system, a very well equipped kitchen and good sound system including an induction loop for the hard of hearing.
The Sunday service begins at 10.30 am and lasts for 1 hour, coffee/tea is served after the service with soft drinks for the children.
Children of any age are welcomed and their birthdays celebrated. Everyone joins in the first quarter of an hour of the service and then the children ( accompanied by mums and dads at their choice ) leave for the adjacent Schoolroom for various activities. The adult service normally includes hymns, prayers, bible readings and a short address.
Since there are no ritual responses or formalities, anyone attending will immediately feel at ease, able to take part and are guaranteed a friendly, warm welcome.
Holy Communion is celebrated on the third Sunday of the month and all believers are invited to take part. The bread and wine are handed round by a steward, the wine in individual glasses.
