About us

We're a super friendly Anglican church in the heart of Newcastle-under-Lyme and we'd love to meet you. From lively contemporary music to inspiring preaching, young adult / student lunches and more, we're a church with hospitality at its heart. We promise you a warm welcome and a chance to really develop your relationship with God, in the heart of growing church community.



We meet on Sunday mornings at 8.30 and 10.30. The 8.30 service is traditional with liturgy, a shorter version of the talk at 10.30 and held in the quieter area of the choir stalls. Our 10.30 service is suitable for all the family (there's a creche and children's activities), with lively worship, inspiring teaching from the Bible and followed by tea, coffee and a chance to get to know some people.
