It's a Wonderful Life is a 1946 American Christmas fantasy comedy-drama film produced and directed by Frank Capra. The film stars James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody (Henry Travers). Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be if he had never been born. Rated PG.
We are lucky to have an active congregation and regularly put on a wide variety of community-focused events.

We make the most of the facilities available by hosting events in both the church itself and our nearby community hall, the Wyndham Hall ensuring that our events are welcoming and accessible for everyone in the local community.
