We asked some of our members and friends why they come to Castle Street. Here’s what they said:

We were made to feel so welcome from our first visit, and now feel part of a special family of all ages and different types of people.

Matt, Anna & Rosa (35, 33 & 7 months)

Castle Street is where I was first baptised 74 years ago. It’s a friendly and welcoming place where I can recharge my spiritual batteries each week.


I’ve found Castle Street a warm, inclusive and diverse Christian community, where I feel both supported and challenged. I have good friends here and value opportunities to explore with them how our faith relates to the pressing social issues of our time.

Ruth, 36

Castle Street has become an essential part of my life. I enjoy the links we have with other churches, which are important to me, as well as the friendliness of the members and ministers, and the variety of worship.

Ron, 77

Castle Street is small enough that people know you by name but large enough that you feel that the church can make a real difference. There’s also a strong interest amongst the congregation in the wider world – issues such as social justice and the environment, which are both important to me.
