God so loved the world that he gave his only Son Jesus Christ so that all who believe in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John Ch. 3 v. 16

We aim to be a warm, welcoming and accepting Christian community, seeking to make Jesus' love known in our community and to grow the church.

This is a parish with two churches - the mother church of All Saints’ (The Mariners’ Church) on the edge of town - and the early 19th Century St James’ Church in the town centre.

As well as having regular services, our church of St. James’ is open for private prayer on weekdays and seeks, through various social activities and teaching programmes, to help all who are searching to discover more about Christian faith and the life of the church.

Our mother church, All Saints’, although no longer the central place of worship, is an integral and essential part of our life together.  We will continue to enhance its role within the affections of the community and worship there regularly.
