TEAM RECTOR:  Matt Simpson
Parts of the Parish Church date back to the
fourteenth Bronze Award awarded to St Dunstan's on 31st March 2020
century, and we are very fond of our buildings, but the real Church is people. 

We are a mixture of different kinds of people, with our faith and failings. What we have in common is finding the Person and work of Jesus Christ life-changing.
