Sunday mornings have a real family feel with children and adults of all ages taking part in the worship, singing, prayer and Bible readings. There are lots of activities for children from 0 to 16 years in our lively, action packed crèche, Sunday School and Young People’s group. Once the children have gone into groups, the main service continues—sometimes with a time of prayer, a sermon, communion (sharing of bread and wine) and chances for personal prayer. The service and Sunday School usually finish just after 12.00 pm. Please stay around afterwards for refreshments and chance to introduce yourself. There is often a deacon (helper) in the entrance hall and serving tea and coffee if you have a question.
The evening service is often more reflective and meditative than the morning services. There is a time of worship,a time for testimonies (sharing), a sermon, communion (alternate Sundays) and a time for personal prayer requests. Again, please stay around for refreshments after the service.
