 About Us

Team Rector ~ Revd Paul White

We have told you a little about our remarkable church building which is visited by tourists and pilgrims from many countries. However the Church first and foremost consists of those who are 'called out' of the world into the family of Jesus Christ.

Baptism opens the doors into this fellowship of faith in which members are spiritually sustained by God's Word, by the Holy Eucharist, by prayer and worship and by the friendships formed here. Our gathering together is not a sign of our rejection of the world but of our need for grace before we  re-enter society 'to live and work to God's praise and glory'.

For us, Jesus is Lord and through Him, God's Kingdom came on earth. We pray and strive for the fulfilment of that Kingdom of justice, peace, truth and selfless love. Our community is open to all to take their place where they feel comfortable. You will receive a warm welcome with no pressure to conform or join in. Our Church is about being yourself and finding yourself in company with others.
