The Church's activities

We would love to welcome you to join us on Sunday at either of our meetings. We are a friendly, local church and welcome visitors of any age or background. Our aim on Sunday is to praise and thank God for all he has done for us and to learn more about him.

Sunday morning services at 11am are fairly informal and family friendly, with a group for children up to 11 years old. The service involves a few songs, an update about activities happening that week, a Bible reading and a talk exploring the reading. After the service we catch up with each other and get to know new faces over tea, coffee and biscuits.

The evening meeting at 6.30pm is more informal and encourages discussion in small groups.

We also have mid-week activities such as Bible study groups, prayer meetings and a group for young people.

Among other seasonal events we have an annual Carol service, a Christmas morning service, Good Friday and Easter Sunday services, and a Kids’ Holiday Bible Club during the summer.

Yes. Facilities are available on the ground floor.

No. There is no collection during any of our services.

What can I expect from a Sunday morning service?
The morning meeting, led by a member of the church, comprises a mix of:
- prayer
- congregational singing, both modern and more traditional hymns
- a reading from the Bible
- a talk for the children (who generally leave for their own activities during the adult talk)
- a talk for the adults
followed by refreshments.

What about the Lord's table / Holy Communion?
This normally takes place as part of the morning meeting after a short period of prayer. Stewards bring us the bread and wine while we remain seated, and we retain a piece of bread or a cup until all have been served, and then join together in eating and drinking after someone has given thanks.

If you are a visitor and a believer, you are welcome to join with us in this celebration. If you are not taking part, please simply sit and let the stewards pass by.

What can I expect from a Sunday evening meeting?
We generally follow a series, either a book of the Bible or topical issues. To help inform and stimulate the discussions we use a mix of study guides and supporting DVDs. We tend to gather together at the beginning and end, breaking into smaller informal groups to discuss what we have seen and heard.
