We are a friendly and welcoming church where we seek to know God and make him known.

We believe although God is a mystery he has revealed himself to the world through the person of Jesus Christ. We connect with him through his creation, through the unchanging word of the Bible, and by the presence of his Holy Spirit.

Our desire is to enable our church to be a reflection of the life and teaching of Jesus in the world around us.  We do this through our worship and ministries as we cooperate with Christians of all denominations to share the love of God.

We acknowledge that, like all people, we are in need of God's love, grace and mercy and we believe Jesus Christ is the hope for the world. Our vision is 'growing the Kingdom : growing disciples' because we see God's mission as dynamic and developing.

If you share these aims, why not come along and find out more?

River Stour Baptisms at Canford Sunday 25 August
We had a wonderful day at Canford on Sunday when five people expressed their faith in Jesus by affirming their baptism by full immersion in the River Stour.  They were (l to r) Scott Colbert, Lisa Ward, Alison Farrell, Sharon Baldwin and Ian Laws. It was a lovely warm day and about 100 family and friends attended with people from the three congregations represented.
