What to expect

We’d like you to feel at home with us so if you haven’t been to our church before here’s some information on what to expect…

Sunday Services
Family Worship – 10:30 a.m. – Evening Worship – 6:30 p.m.

There is a crèche and Kids Ministry for children available during the morning service.
There is also a loop system for those with hearing difficulties.

Holy Communion
First Sunday morning and second Sunday evening, every month. Communion and Healing service on the third Sunday morning every month

Style of service
Our Sunday morning service is a mixture of modern and traditional. Music may include piano, organ, guitars and band. The service lasts about an hour and a quarter and the sermon is normally 20 minutes. It’s a little more formal than Sunday evenings, which are more interactive and relaxed.

Once a month our morning service is a Family Service, which is geared towards children and families. The kids stay in for the whole service and it is vey interactive.

In the evenings we regularly hold Cafe Church, which is a very relaxed style with contemporary worship led by our band and there’s coffee and cakes too.

Coming into the church
When you come in you will probably be given an order of service and maybe some information sheets. We don’t have a liturgy to follow but you’ll be able to check what’s coming next by looking at the order of service. Usually, the words to all the songs and responses are displayed on the large screen.

Money
We collect gifts of money part way during the service. Plates are circulated around the congregation. Please don’t feel obliged to give anything. If you do wish to give, the money will be used to support the work of this church, with a proportion given to Christian work in the UK and abroad.

Communion and healing services
These are held on the first and third Sunday mornings of the month. We either receive communion in our seats, or it is served from the front of the church with people going up to the front to receive it. There is an opportunity to ask for prayer for healing at this time.
If the bread and wine are being distributed to people in their seats, we eat the bread as it is brought round. Then we wait until all have been served with individual miniature cups of wine (non-alcoholic) and drink together, to show that we are one body.
