Our Mission


The first duty of Christians is to express our love of the Lord our God with all our heart and soul and strength and mind; and to love our neighbour as ourselves. This we call Service, and it begins on the first day of the week with our worship.

The Eucharist is celebrated every Sunday at times listed. Additionally, there are weekday Eucharists at each of the Churches.


Weddings and other Celebrations


Our churches offer a traditional setting for your most sacred celebrations.
