Worshipping Together

There’s loads of things that we do together as a church, but the most important is worshipping God together.  Our main act of worship is held at the church on Sunday morning at 10.45 am.  It’s a time for all the family – young, old and everyone in between.  The service lasts about an hour which includes time all together before going into different groups to allow the adults, young people and children to worship in different ways.  A typical service consists of some hymns and songs, prayers, Bible readings and a talk.
Whether you have been to our church before, a different church before, or have never been to a church before, you are more than welcome to join us.On Sunday evening at 6.30pm there is another service which sometimes follows the same pattern as the morning, but often has a more meditative and reflective element to worship.

One Sunday in the month we also hold a 9.30 communion to which you would be most welcome. Please contact the office for more details.

On the third Thursday in the month we hold our Messy Church for children and their families. Starting straight from school and finishing by 5.30pm. Fun, craft, song and finishing with tea it’s a must for all.

 
On the last Wednesday of every month we hold a short act of worship that includes communion. WoW (Worship on Wednesday) starts at 9.30 and lasts around 30 mins. It is held in one of upstairs rooms and is followed by coffee you would be most welcome to join us.

If you have never been to our church before you might like to know the following before you come:

  • Everyone who works with the children and under-18 year-olds are trained and fully DBS cleared for their work.
  • When you arrive, there will be people to meet you, they’re not there to scare you but point you in the right direction – ask them anything you like!
  • We meet for worship upstairs.  If you struggle with stairs there is a fantastically smooth lift and people to accompany you if you’re worried, just ask the nice people by the door!
  • There are parts of the service, like the singing of hymns that everyone joins in – don’t feel as if you have to join in anything you don’t wish to!
  • There will be an offertory during the service which is the time when members of the church give money to help the work of the church – if you are visiting there is no need to give anything, it’s for those who have made a commitment to the church.
  • All the books you need for the service will be on the bottom of the chair in front of you.
  • The notice-sheet that you’ll be given as you come into church will tell you all the things that are happening the following week – it’s worth a good read!
  • Above all feel comfortable and relaxed – do what you like – coming to worship is about you being you, and letting God be God!
