You will receive a warm welcome whether you come as a visitor to our lovely church to pray, or if you come as one looking for a Church to make your spiritual home. We would be glad to have us with you.

Vale church is featured in "The Book of Ebenezer Le Page" and was also the chuch in which its author was baptised;

"I have lived all my days to the sound of bells of the Vale Church, coming to me on the wind over the water. When I was a boy I used to hear them playing a hymn of a Sunday evening, and then a quick dig dong, ding dong, before the service began; and I would hear them practicing of a Wednesday night..."
