We are the three Incumbents in the Pearl Cluster of Churches.
We rotate between all the church buildings, delighting as we bring ministry in the difference and diversity of tradition, and meeting along the way folks in different contexts.
We are glad you have found us, please do not hesitate to get in touch with any of us, or anyone on the Clergy team, or of course any of the wardens of the churches. If we don't have the answer straight away we can signpost you to the person who does. Our prayer is that as you discover a little bit about us you will feel free to come and join us, we look forward to meeting you.
Each church has its own page, click on the link on the church drop down menu to find out more.
