You are welcome to join us any Sunday at 10.00am for our Family Service. Since the coronavirus “lockdown” began, we have been streaming this service live to our Facebook Page and this will continue even as lockdown restrictions are easing.
Since July 2020 we have also been able to welcome people back into the church building for worship. If you are planning to join us on Sunday this week, please let us know by completing this online form. (We don’t ask for any contact details – this is just to help us plan how to conduct the service safely.)
Children are always welcome at our services and under normal circumstances, we have a fantastic Young Church programme, which runs every Sunday (including a scaled-down form in the holidays). At the moment, we are unable to offer Young Church but if you want to bring your kids to our Sunday service, they would be very welcome. We suggest you bring something fun but quiet for them to play with (to help them enjoy their time in the building as well). Services are currently shorter than normal, lasting around 45mins – which should ease the concentration of adults and kids alike!
What to expect
Our 10am service has a friendly and accessible feel. You will be welcomed at the door with a smile and it doesn’t matter if you’re late!
You will be shown to your seat by a steward. To help keep everyone safe, we ask that (at the moment) you remain in your seat throughout the service. (Families with kids will be allocated a whole pew!)
It does take quite a bit longer to seat people whilst maintaining a safe distance between family groups so we’d be really grateful if you arrived early for the service. The church will be open from 9.30am.
The service will consist of readings from the Bible, prayers (some that we say together and some led from the front) and a stimulating talk to show us something wonderful about God from today’s readings and how that can make a difference in our lives this week.
You can expect a range of old hymns and modern songs – everything from traditional favourites to upbeat numbers, chosen with the children in mind. Due to current restrictions, we are not able to sing together in the church building at the moment but someone will sing for us while we listen and reflect. (However, nodding, clapping and foot tapping is very much encouraged and not against any COVID19 regulations!)
After the 10.00am service everyone is normally invited to head over to the Church Hall. Over tea & coffee (and sometimes even cake!) there’s a chance to refresh our bodies and our friendships as we catch up on the week with our church family.
During the COVID19 crisis, we are inviting people to bring their own tea/coffee in a flask and spend just a few minutes catching up with the rest of the church family after the service in the church yard (whilst maintaining a safe distance between family units, of course!) Please do join us for this second part of our Sunday morning service!
