This is a historic church rebuilt after one of many Portsmouth fires. It is as beautiful as any other church in the area. It has very active outreach programs. They vary from children activities to Common Table free lunch to all on Thursdays.

We started coming here as visitors then joined the Church. We were always felt welcomed and not left out. I now go early to Church so I can listen to the choir rehearse. They are truly gifted.
