Sunday Services

Picture of group coming to church
 
Two Sunday services are held each week:
 
10.30am: All-age worship
With a focus on families, this is a well attended meeting with ages ranging from just a few months to 'quite elderly'. Everyone is together for the first half of the meeting; this is a time to get everyone engaged with the theme and each other and includes contemporary worship with a band. The children and their adult leaders leave to be taught in their own groups at around 11.00am while everyone else remains to hear the word preached.
 
6.00pm: Evening worship
Preaching is the key element in this service which has no regularly imposed style. One week could comprise five Wesley hymns the next may involve little music but lots of silence and the next a mix of contemporary and traditional.
 
Junior Church leads the first half of the morning all-age service and a worship leaders will normally (but not always) lead on Sunday evenings.
 
Ministry, such as prayer for healing, is available during or after all services.
 
Refreshments are available at the close of Sunday services where the fellowship continues. Regularly, these refreshments can turn miraculously into a magnificent traditional Sunday lunch (but not as in water-into-wine miracles!). Occasionally hot beef or pork sandwiches appear after evening services courtesy of Heaven's Kitchen leftovers.

We run a Traidcraft stall each Sunday morning to buy tea, coffee, biscuits, rice etc.
 
If you want to come to a Sunday service but need transport you need only ask and we will try to make arrangements. If you are physically disabled, the church is mainly on the level right from outside and the worship area has a hearing loop.
