Morning Service

We meet as a church family every Sunday morning at 10.30am.

During the service, there are songs and hymns (we like a mixture of old and new), prayers, and a chance to hear readings from the Bible, before our preachers help us think about what those readings mean for us - whoever we are, and however old or young we might be.

All of the words are provided, and whoever is leading the service explains when to stand up and sit down. You can sit wherever you like in the building; there's a balcony at the back, too. We love having children in the services, and we don't mind at all if they talk or make a noise - but parents of younger children might like to know that there's a handy room at the back with some toys in it, if that becomes useful at any point. The welcomers can show you where to go, and give you what you need.

Every month, there's a communion service, at which church family members are invited to share bread and wine (the wine is in a common cup). The usual length of a service is about 60 to 70 minutes.

On the first Sunday of the month, there's an all-age service, in which all ages stay together for all of the time: that's a bit shorter, lasting for 45 to 50 minutes.

Covid restrictions have now been removed, but we are making sure that hand sanitiser is available, and that the building is well ventilated each week. There's plenty of space in the building, so if you want to sit in a spot which is socially-distanced, it shouldn't be a problem.
