What our Sunday Services are like


The service begins at 10:30 am with a time of worship with songs. 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. 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. After the service, you're welcome to stick around for a chat. It is a great way to meet people, or simply to have a break.




What about my kids?


We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages. 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. Children stay with their parent or grown-up if they prefer. You will need to go with your children to their groups and register them as part of our child safety policy. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.
