Worship

Our Sunday service is the one time each week where we all come together to worship our Lord and Saviour.

 

Our worship team work hard to put together a balanced programme in an attempt to include something for everyone, a difficult task when the age span of the church is from toddlers upto 80+.

 

The young people join us for the first part of our service then they leave us to go into Fun Club, where they participate in lots of different interactive activities through which they can learn more about Jesus.

 

The service often includes a time for open prayer, as well as a time for people to share and encourage each other with how Jesus has been working in their lives over the past week.

 

We use up to date technology in the form of our laptop and data projector to enhance our worship by displaying all the songs, DVD's, bible readings and PowerPoint presentations on a large screen and we find that this allows the individual the freedom to worship in which ever way they feel comfortable, helping them draw closer to God.

 

If you're new to our church here is a snapshot of what you can expect to find in order to help you feel as if you belong from the moment you step through the door.

Wear what you want
There is no dress code at church – come smart or casual and you’ll fit right in.

“Church couldn’t have been lovelier”
Expect a welcoming atmosphere with friendly people from all backgrounds and ages.

Giving is for our church family
During the service we provide an opportunity for our church family to give financially towards the work of the church. As a guest, please do not feel obliged to participate in the offering unless you feel you want to.

No-obligation communion
Some Sundays see us share communion together to celebrate Jesus’ death and resurrection. If you are a Christian, you are welcome to join us in this meal. If you would not consider yourself a Christian, feel free to let this pass you by – no offence will be taken.

“I can’t wait to come back”
Our services tend to last around an hour and a half– and after the service there is tea, coffee and a biscuit available in the church hall, this gives everyone the opportunity to meet new people or catch up with old friends.
