Instead of our normal Sunday morning service, we sometimes enjoy a service around food, we call this our Breakfast Church, an opportunity to spend time together in a café style service. Continental breakfast, sometime pancakes, sometimes a full English breakfast, but at all times with joy and laughter. You can join us any time between 10.30 – 12.30 and leave when you need to. Kids of all ages are welcome and looked after by our youth team.
On the first Sunday in every month after the normal morning service we join together for lunch, it’s a bit of a pot-luck, as we all bring something to share and eat. However, if for any reason you can’t bring anything, please still come along, there is normally plenty of food.
We are creating a space for our young people to meet-up in our new youth room decorated by the young people. A space to enjoy spending time together chilling out, watching a film, or listening to music, it has its own self-contained kitchen.
We have our Men’s Breakfast every other month on a Saturday morning. A time to chat and dig into a full English breakfast.
From the 2 November 2019 we will start our Bereavement Café, working jointly with St. Clare Hospice, We want to provide a drop-in group to support local people experiencing bereavement, offering a place to meet and connect with others who may share similar experiences.
If you’re thinking of visiting our church – YOU’LL receive a warm Welcome!
Our meetings on a Sunday are usually at 10:30 am and 6:00 pm, and they typically last about an hour and a quarter. During the services, we sing songs of praise, which are projected on a large screen at the front (song books and large print paper copies are available for those who can’t see the screen). We also pray, read the Bible and listen to a talk about a particular Bible reading.
In the morning, the children share in the beginning of the service with everyone else. Children are encouraged to sit at the front and to participate in the service. Most Sundays children will go through to Junior Church in the Rear Halls part way through the service.
After the morning worship, there is an opportunity to sit down and enjoy a chat over a mug of tea or coffee in the rear halls. Often on the first Sunday of the month, we then have lunch together – there is always enough food for visitors, so expect to be asked if you would like to stay for lunch on those Sundays!
In the evening service we spend time in worship, sharing together, and in ministry time in the power of the Holy Spirit.
There are many other things going on during the week, and these will normally be shown in the calendar, under the “What’s On” tab.
