Every Sunday we gather at 10:30am
to worship God and encourage each other in the faith
What should I expect?
REGULAR SUNDAY MORNINGS
Everyone's welcome. There's no dress code and you don't need to know any special religious words or customs. We usually start our time of worship with all ages together. After some contemporary songs and a short introduction to a theme, the children and young people move to the Ansell Centre for Junior Church.
In the church we hear some readings from the Bible and consider what they mean for us today. We also do some more singing - a mix of traditional hymns and modern songs - and we pray for the world. Once a month (usually the second Sunday), we share bread and wine to remember the death of Jesus.
Sometimes, all ages stay in for a more interactive and participatory service.
All services usually last about an hour and are followed by refreshments in the Ansell Centre - an important time for the church family to catch up with one another.
CAFE CHURCH SERVICES
Breakfast is served! From time to time, we meet in the Ansell Centre for an informal and interactive type of service. On arrival, you can grab some breakfast and join a table. We sing a few contemporary worship songs and then explore a topic through activities and discussion, which is wrapped up with a short talk.
MESSY CHURCH SUNDAYS
Get Messy! Once a month we run Messy Church at 3pm - this is a family-friendly way of doing church filled with celebration, creativity and hospitality. We usually start with a couple of short activities whilst everyone gathers, and then we sing some songs and have a Bible story. We move across into the Ansell Centre for a number of (messy) art and craft activities based on the story and theme. And, after a couple of games, we eat tea together. Finishes at 5pm.
Messy Church is usually on the third Sunday of the month, but check the homepage for this month's time and theme!
On Messy Church Sundays, there is no Junior Church during the morning service and the format and hymns of that service are often more traditional.
