We are the Forest Hill Team Parish
We are a blend of the traditional and the contemporary, an open, inclusive church serving the people of the parish. In our worship and in our social life we seek to express and share God’s love for everyone. We welcome all, regardless of age, ethnicity, sexuality or church background. Exploring together, we journey towards a fullness of life offered to us through Jesus Christ’s self-sacrificing love. A mixture of those who are strong in their faith with others who are filled with questions and doubt, we encourage a willingness to explore our faith and be ready to be surprised by God. Knowing we are loved, we are ready to share our faith with others, helping to build peace and justice in the world. We look forward to seeing you in church and if you would like to be in touch with us, we would be very pleased to hear from you. Contact details can be found at the bottom of this page.
