All are welcome at our services.
Our church is home to regular Sunday and Wednesday congregations and holds special services at Advent and Christmas, Lent, Holy Week and Easter and at other times throughout the year. At different times of the year the character of church services changes; the great celebrations of Christmas and Easter have a festive feel, while during Advent and Lent the mood is more reflective.
Our main service of the week is held on Sundays, children and young people are welcome and toys/activities are available throughout. After the service we serve tea and coffee in the rear of the church, offering a chance to get to know each other better and to welcome newcomers.
If you would like someone to pray for you about a specific issue or for healing, Revd Gemma or one of the Ministry Team will be happy to sit with you after the service.
Our Regular Services
Morning Prayer is a simple, said service of prayer and praise to begin the day.
Holy Communion, also known as the Eucharist, is a service where:
- We gather as the church, the body of Christ
- We listen to God’s word
- We give thanks over bread and wine for all that Jesus has done and continues to do for us and remember the meal Jesus shared with his disciples on the night before he died
- We are sent out to serve God’s word
This service includes songs, prayers, bible readings and a short talk, and is normally led by a member of the Worship Team.
