Whether you visit us in person or just online, we extend a warm welcome to all, and want to help you feel at home with us, to help you feel the presence of God at St Martin’s and enable you to make a difference in the world.
Our Sunday services start at 10:30am. There is also a said Communion after the main service, whenever Communion is not included in this first service – this will be on the first and third Sundays in a month, plus the fifth Sunday, when appropriate. We look forward to welcoming you to our services at St Martin’s Church. More details of our services are shown under ‘What’s On’.
Tea, coffee and doughnuts are served in the church hall after the regular morning service; it’s a chance to meet people for a chat.
