Our Sunday meetings are the centre of our church life are our Sunday services, where we meet together to worship God, to strengthen believers, and to proclaim Jesus Christ to all.
We are currently meeting in person again with social distancing and other measures to protect against the risks of spreading coronavirus. We recognise that not everyone will be able to attend in person, so we will still be streaming our services on our YouTube channel from 10:30am on Sundays for those who don't yet feel comfortable attending in person.
If you've attended a service before coronavirus it will feel quite different. Find out what it'll be like before you come.
Our main meeting as a church family is on Sunday mornings at 10:30.
Our services are relatively informal in style and involve praying, singing, reading from the Bible and hearing the good news about Jesus Christ explained and applied to us from the Bible.
Whether you'd call yourself a Christian or you're just looking we'd love you to join us - there will be other people in the same situation. There's no dress code - wear whatever you're most comfortable in. We try and avoid complicated religious language, and to explain the reason for everything we do.
During the first part of this service the children and young people stay in the mail room, and there's usually a short talk that is relevant to them. Over the last year we've been looking at the lives of famous Christians throughout history.
Half-way through the service the children go through to the back rooms for 'Outback': age-appropriate Bible teaching and activities. Unfortunately these activities can't run at the moment due to coronavirus, so children will need to stay with their parents.
Meanwhile the adults stay in the church to hear a talk explaining the Bible passage for the week, what it tells us about Jesus, and what it means for our lives.
At the moment we all need to leave quickly after the service, but we look forward to one day being about to stay around afterwards to chat over tea, coffee and biscuits in the back hall.
Sunday evening services are paused for the time being due to coronavirus, but instead we have a whole church prayer meeting via Zoom. To request an invitation, please email Mark on email@example.com.
The Lord's Supper
We normally celebrate the Lord's Supper twice a month, once in the evening and once in the morning. This will follow on after the normal service, with a short break in between for those who'd like to leave. All who know and love the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour are invited to share the bread and the wine. If that's not you, you're warmly invited to stay and watch as we remember Jesus' death in our place.
