With its busy programme of daily services, the church seeks to be open for pilgrims and visitors alike, and to offer a haven of tranquility at the centre of this busy borough.
In addition to services, visitors are welcome each day between
10 am and 4 pm, unless specifically indicated in the Diary.
On Saturdays, tea, coffee and light refreshments are available in the Anderson Room at the West End of the Church from 10 am - 4.30 pm.
