New to 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 singing, prayers, a bible reading and a sermon helping us to engage and apply that bible reading. At our traditional 9am the words you need will be contained in a specific service sheet and hymn book. You’ll be given these as you arrive and there will be no need to flip around different pages. At the 10.30 and 6.30 service all the words are on screens around the church.
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 children and young people at church?
At the 1030 service we have a fantastic programme for the children and young people at the Church for ages 0–18. Children and Young People can stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together. Some of the other children and young people like to sit together on the left hand side of the church and your children would be welcome to join them there if they would rather do that.
Someone will announce when the children need to go to their groups. You will need to go with your children the first time and register them. You can then return to hear the sermon once your children and settled and collect them at the end of the service. When we share communion together at the 1030 service the children are brought back into the service.
For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you under Youth & Children.
Is there a dress code?
No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
Will I have to join in?
