Hi, 

We have taken the decision to continue to meet online at present, hopefully around Easter we should be back together as a church family.

We are however able to meet at the building for midweek prayer, mental health support groups and our trained facilitators have started the domestic violence support/freedom courses. 

Our church will continue to be open for private prayer on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 9am to 3pm. You are welcome to just call in and request prayer for yourself or loved ones. One of the staff will be happy to pray with you, should this be something that you desire.


Once we are back meeting together as a group, the following may help address some initial questions.

It's never easy to visit a church for the first time, so we do everything we can to make that experience a good one.


Welcome!
Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about our Church.

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 25 mins of singing with opportunity for church members to pray or read a passage from the bible. After the notices there will be a preach from one of the leaders at the Church with a chance to respond at the end of the service.

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

What happens to the kids at church?

We have a fantastic programme for the kids at the Church for:

Creche available with the service available on sound system if desired (6 months to 3 years).

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.

 "
Splash" for children aged 4 years to 11 years.  
 "
Explorers" for the older children, this currently takes the style of a DVD and discussion around various Biblical perspectives and challenges that face the youth of today.  Once every 4 weeks this age group are encouraged to stay in the church service.

Both
Splash and Explorers are held in our church building and overseen by adults who have current DBS checks.  Additional information, please see our Safeguarding information, or ask one of the church leaders.

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.

 

I have more questions, how can I get in touch and ask them.

Please feel free to contact us.
