First Time?

Our main Sunday Morning Services are at 10:30,

here is what to expect when you come along

We would all love to welcome you

 

What Happens?

  • We meet as an inclusive group of people of all ages and from all sorts of backgrounds to get to know God and share our joys, sorrows and hopes.

  • Hymns, Bible readings, a sermon, prayers and Holy Communion

  • The service lasts about an hour (slightly shorter on the first Sundays of the month)

Are Children Welcome?

  • We love hearing young children worshipping with us! There is a changing table in the disabled toilet, and a play area towards the back of Church. Breastfeeding babies are very welcome to feed at any time – make yourself at home.

  • Services on the first Sunday of the month are informal with an all age talk and plenty for children to engage in

  • All other Sundays there children’s groups for ages 3+, though children are welcome to stay in the service

Before the service starts

  • There is no dress code - come as you are

  • There is parking on Church Road – please park on the left hand side as you approach the Church. We try to keep the bays for those with access problems. At busy times, it might be easier to park on Temple Way and walk through to Church Road.

  • Someone will welcome you at the door and hand out anything you need to follow the service

  • You're welcome to sit anywhere

During the service

  • Nothing is compulsory! You don’t need to join in anything unless you want to.

  • You will be able to follow the service (including when we usually stand up and sit down) in the booklet you were handed at the door. Just ask the person sitting next to you if you need help.

  • There is a collection in the middle of the service, but please don’t feel you have to give.  Many of our regular worshippers give by standing order so not everyone puts something on the basket when it is passed around. Thank you in advance for any donation you would like to make.

  • You are welcome to take bread and wine with us if you do so in your home church. If you would prefer a blessing, hang on to your service sheet as you come up to the front with everyone else and we will know that is what you would prefer. If you need a gluten free wafer please ask one of the welcomers on your way in.

Accessibility

We have:

  • Step free access

  • Toilets, including a disabled toilet in the hall

  • Sound system with a hearing loop

  • Space for wheelchairs – our welcomers will help you to find a space

  • Large print words available - just ask the welcomers

After the service

  • We serve free real Fairtrade coffee and tea after the service in the Church Hall and would love to meet you and introduce you to other people.
