Our Service

The service begins at 10:30 am with a time of worship with songs, led by our band. We typically have 2 or 3 songs lasting approximately 20 minutes. These times are often loud and lively and carries an atmosphere of celebration. We then spend some time praying, sharing news and notices, usually about what’s going on in the life of the church. We also pass around a basket and take up a collection - but this is completely optional and voluntary. Following this, we have a short break during which children aged 0-18 have the option of either staying in the main service or going to various age based rooms for children's activities. There is a creche available for babies and toddlers. One of our leaders will then give a talk that is Bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We finish with a prayer and/or a final worship song. Sometimes there is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service. We serve tea, coffee and biscuits after the service. It is a great way to meet people, or simply to have a break. All refreshments are free.


What about my kids?

We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages. Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. At the end of the notices someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their various groups. You will need to go with your children to their groups and register them as part of our child safety policy. Whilst you are dropping your kids off at their groups, we pause to take time to chat to someone sitting near or next to us, giving folk a chance to come back before the sermon begins. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.
