Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details here) for our Sunday Service starting at 0930am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you will be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team.
 

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access into the building, and a stairlift for anyone who requires as the church meeting is held on the 1st floor.  Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. The disabled toilet is in the main foyer on the ground floor.

Our Service

The main service begins at 0930 am with a warm welcome from one of our team members. Then follows a time of sung worship. We typically have 2 or 3 songs lasting approximately 20 minutes. Sometimes a person might pray out loud or read a small passage from the bible.  We then share news and notices, usually about what’s going on in the life of the church. There will be a sermon that is bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We then finish with a time of worship, followed by tea or coffee and a time of fellowship. 
There is always opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service should you require.

What about my kids?

We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages:

 
  • Seedlings (3-8 years)

Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. At the end of the notices someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their various groups.  

The kids group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play.

Getting Connected


Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.

Serving and Volunteering

If you want to get involved in the life of the church and help us make Sundays run smoothly, please speak with one of the leaders. 

Other Ministries

We also run the following ministries:

  • Furniture project
  • Mental health support
  • Domestic violence support
  • Foodbank
  • Charity shop
