What should I expect when I visit the church?
You will receive a very warm welcome and lots of friendly faces. Please feel free to sit wherever you like. We try to explain everything during the services, but do feel free to ask someone if you're not sure.
Our 9:30 Sunday service is more formal, but still quite relaxed, with organ-led traditional hymns, Bible readings, a sermon, prayers and communion.
Our 11:15 Sunday service is very informal, with guitar-led songs and children's work during the service. There are readings from the Bible, a sermon and a chance to pray. We don't use books at this service, everything is up on the screens.
Tea, coffee and biscuits are served between the services across the road in the Spire Centre, where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.
What happens to the kids at church?
At the 9:30 service children are welcome, but there is no structured kids' church. There is an area at the back of church where children can play - please stay with them!
At the 11:15 service, children under three are welcome to stay in the church. We have an area at the back of church where they can play - please stay with them! Children aged 3-11 years stay with the adults bringing them at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together for the first part of the morning. They will then go over the road to Kids' Church. Please come along before the service (from 11am) to register your children.
Is there a dress code?
No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes. Jeans are fine.
Will I have to join in?
Not at all! You are free to simply sit and listen, or join in as much as you like. We don't mind.
I have more questions, how can I get in touch and ask them?
Please feel free to contact us.
