What should I expect when I visit the church on Sundays?
You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. There will be singing, prayers, a bible reading and a sermon helping us to engage and apply that bible reading. At both the 9am and 10.30 service all the words are on screens around the church.
Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.
What happens for children and young people at church?
At the 10.30 service we have a fantastic programme for the children and young people at the Church.
On Week A we will have our SHINE on Sunday groups for 0-14 year olds. We start the service together in the church. Someone will announce when the children need to go to their groups and we will be able to pray for each other before we separate. You will need to go with your children the first time and register them. You can then return to hear the sermon once your children and settled and we will reunite for the end of the service.
On Week B for our new Communion for Everyone service we will remain in the church throughout.
We have have our 4pm Explore@4 service which is held in the afternoon on Week B.
Explore@4 is suited for families of younger children with crafts, bible stories and passages using contemporary worship. There is opportunity for discussion and reflection too.
For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you under Youth & Children.
