Saint Clement's' churchyard and it's blooms are there for all of us to enjoy.  A stroll round the churchyard, on the mowed path, is a blessing.  This beautiful garden is in bloom as a result of countless hours of careful gardening by our Church Grounds team who put in so much thought, skill and effort to bring the grounds in to bloom.  As ever, we ask that however pretty they look, PLEASE DO NOT PICK THE CHURCHYARD FLOWERS.

Data Protection

Your privacy is important to us, and we want to communicate with church members in a way which has their consent, and is in line with UK law on data protection.  A contact details form can be downloaded here for you to complete and return so that we may contact you in the way you choose and in line with GDPR regulations.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome keep-fit mums, football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like ‘organised religion.’ We’ve been there too!

If you blew all your money on the horses, you’re welcome here. We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.

We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost on the London Road and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts ... and you!
