Sundays at 11am
We start with a selection of worship songs displayed by video. We favour modern Christian music with occasional traditional hymns, delivered by a music group incorporating vocalists, a keyboard, guitars and drums, who play at a volume which respects the hearer’s ear drums. Usually children remain in the service for about 30 minutes when the school aged young people will leave the main area to go to various age appropriate programmes. Very young children can be left under supervision in our crèche.
We rely on a wide selection of gifted visiting speakers, including people from our own membership, to then address the remaining adults. They give a bible based, 25 or 30 minute talk, which is relevant to all levels of interest, from those just searching for faith to the mature Christian.
On alternate Sundays there will be a brief communion (breaking of bread) element to the service, where those who have a personal faith in Jesus Christ as their saviour are invited to respond to His command to take bread and wine in memory of His sacrificial death for us on the cross.
The majority of attendees usually stay a while for refreshments and a chat.
We feel it is very important that children realise that church is fun. Therefore, after church, we provide a bouncy castle and a range of other enjoyable facilities. These include pool, table tennis, playstations etc. in our cellar (one of the benefits of our buildings former use as a pub!).
