A Warm Welcome
Where and When
At the moment we are meeting ONLINE ONLY, through Youtube, Facebook and Zoom. This will be actively reviewed during the current pandemic and we will return to meeting at the Church Building (details below) for our Sunday Service starting at 10.30am as soon as we are able to. 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 should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team.
We would normally serve tea, coffee and biscuits from at the end of the service as it's a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. At the moment during Covid restrictions this will not be done.
Plan your journey:
Open Google Maps
Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There are disabled toilets in the main foyer.
The main service begins at 10.30am with a warm welcome from one of our team members. Then follows a time of sung worship, led by our band. 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. Sometimes people share things that they believe God is saying to the whole church family. This might seem strange the first time you hear it but it’s all part of our connecting with God.
One of our leaders will then give a message that is relevant to life, based on the bible and one that we can apply to our everyday life. There are regular opportunities to receive prayer at the end of the service.
What about my kids?
Usually we have a programme for the kids led by Children’s & Families Co-ordinator, Kerry Murray who can be contacted on the church office number 01293 512574 or by email email@example.com
We cater for younger children with a creche we are currently developing as well as:
3 years old - 6 years old
7 years old - Year 7 (11yrs)
At the moment we have a special stream for children on our Youtube Channel at 9.30am on a Sunday followed by a Zoom chat with Kerry at approximately 9.45am. Please contact Kerry for login details.
Normally children would 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. You will need to go with your children and register them, the first time they attend.
During the session, the children will get to do activities such as play games, do crafts, sing songs and learn about Jesus.
Children's workers are DBS checked.
We know how hard it can be for you and your kids to be part of a new group, so please do contact us if you have any questions about our children's work.
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. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.
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.
