Hebrews 10:24-25

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.


Church members play an important part in the life of the town and the surrounding area. A team from St Edmund’s is currently helping to pioneer a diocesan ‘Inspired Futures’ initiative to help grow the church and make it more readily available to local interest groups of various kinds.

Plans are already well advanced to launch an interactive local heritage centre in one of the transepts, provide gallery space for local artists and photographers, develop better facilities for concerts and entertainment at the crossing, and give people with limited IT skills access to new technology so they can keep in touch with family overseas.

They are all developments that demonstrate our commitment to local people and our care for others alongside our primary role - to provide a place of welcome for anyone wishing to join us in our Christian worship.
