Christmas 2018 - for details of all services and times, please click here or visit the church calendar

You are welcome to any (or all!) of our three regular services, which all focus on the Word of God but each have a slightly different style:

9.30 am*  This service is our main "family" service, including contemporary music, children's groups, and an informal atmosphere.  The sermon is relayed to a creche for those looking after very young children.  Refreshments are offered after the service.

11.15 am*  This is a more traditional service, including organ music and a contemplative style, albeit generally the same sermon is preached at both morning services.  Refreshments are available before this service - providing a good opportunity to meet up with members of the congregation who have attended the earlier service.

6.30 pm  This is our most informal service, with contemporary music and a relaxed atmosphere.    After the service is an opportunity to chat over refreshments.  At approximately 8pm our "students' group" meets - often including a meal!

* Note: Whilst generally we hold 9.30am and 11.15 am morning services, there are occasional Sundays when we vary these arrangements (eg holding a joint morning service).  Please see our calendar for any variations to our normal morning pattern!

We look forward to meeting you!

What to expect when I visit the church

You can expect a warm welcome, great worship, an impacting talk and a friendly bunch of people gathering to learn more about God.
Also tea, coffee and simply spending time together! We have limited parking so it helps to get here early to get a space.

What about children coming to church?

We have a fantastic programme for the children at church for ages 0-13 in our 9.30am service. Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship together for the first part of the service. The speaker will make it clear where and when children need to go to their programme. The 1115am service will have a creche available, with toys and a safe play area where you can be with your very young children.
Children can expect to have fun playing games, and learning about God in a relevant way.

Will I have to do anything weird?

We hope not! If you're just looking in on Christian faith as an enquirer, you're very welcome. If we do something you can't do with integrity (profess faith, speak prayers, receive communion etc.), then just politely bow out - that's absolutely fine. But we want you to know what it looks like when followers of Jesus gather, so we won't "brush out" all the things that belong with our commitment to him.

Do I have to "dress up"?

No, just wear something comfortable.

What about Communion?

 Regularly we hold services of Holy Communion, when we remember with bread and wine the last meal that Jesus shared with friends. We welcome anyone to Communion who recognises Jesus as Lord and would normally take Communion in the church from which they have come. Gluten-free bread is available - just let the server know as they pass along.

Do come and join us!
