About St Lawrence's Church

[St Lawrence's Church]

St Lawrence's is a Church of England church with a core of committed members.

Our congregation is made up of people from many different backgrounds, spanning a wide age range (0 – 105) and with preferences for different styles of service.

We are an integral part of the community.

A large proportion of the population of the parish will pass through our doors at some point during the year. St. Lawrence’s is a place people turn to in times of joy and sorrow.

We have a keen sense of our mission.

We are called to love God and love our neighbours as ourselves. So we seek to worship God, to care for others and to be a faithful Christian witness to our community.
