Service times for St Lawrence's. Sunday at 9:30am and Wednesday at 10am.

You’ll find us along Centenary Avenue (not far from the Nook), where our modern Church of England building (and beautiful garden) is home to a warm and welcoming church family.

We try to show Jesus’s love for us in our worship of him and in how we serve alongside our local community and beyond.

Advert for our Jubilee Coffee Morning 10am to 1230pm Friday 3rd June.

UPDATE: while it is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering, we still request you wear a mask whe attending st lawrence’s to help protect the vulnerable members of our community.

our sunday mass is also LIVESTREAMed on our FACEBOOK PAGE at 9:30am each week. you can also join in our wednesday mass at 10am each week via our phone church service. details for this, along with the order of service for sundays and other SPIRITUAL RESOURCES FOR USE AT HOME CAN BE FOUND HERE, or CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION.

whether you can join us in person or not, church is so much more than the building – it is each one of us who puts their faith in Jesus. if you connect with st lawrence’s physically or virtually, we are still United as the Body of Christ.
