Some key information about the church...

What should I expect when I visit the church?

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 approximately 45 minutes of worship, which includes, singing,  prayer and reading a passage from the Bible. Following this there will be a preach from one of the leaders at the Church with a chance to respond at the end of the service. The  service lasts for 60 to 75 minutes. 

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.

On the second Sunday of the month we have an 'all-age morning service'. the children stay in for all of this service and the whole service is planned to suit them; often the service contains a practical activity.

On the third Sunday morning of each month we have a communion service, where we share bread and wine. Anyone is allowed to be in the service, and, anyone who has faith in Jesus Christ as the their Lord and Saviour may share in taking the bread and wine. For those who do not wish to take this, it is simple to just observe and not take part.

 

What happens to the kids at church?

We have a fantastic programme for the kids at the Church for ages 0–17. Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs) together for the first part of the morning. Someone will announce when the children need to go to their programme. You will need to go with your children and register them.

For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you under church life.
 

Is there a dress code?

No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
 

Will I have to join in?

Not at all!
You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
