Our Looking

Things seen about our local community

  • Diversity: multi-cultural, rich and poor.
  • Occupancy differing: tower blocks, terraced housing, large detached.
  • Congested streets, some good parks; two local primary schools to double in size over the next few years.

Three things we have seen about our church

  • Less people, fewer children, lower frequency, changing faces.
  • Good services and singing.
  • Significant in the community, friendly, caring.

Our Discerning
