What happens on a Sunday Morning?
To begin, We spend some time singing praise to God - the words are always up on the video screen - feel free to join in if you feel comfortable. We sing a mixture of older, traditional hymns and modern praise, led by piano, organ, or praise band.
If you have children, there is a space for babies and primary kids to play at the front left hand side of the church, and they are most welcome to join. Just before the sermon, the babies, children and teenagers go through to the back hall and upstairs lounge to Park Kids - a fun time filled with singing some more songs, playing games, making a craft, and engaging with the Bible in groups of own age.
We always open and read the Bible. Feel free to bring your own (we use the NIV version), or there are Bibles in church which you can find near your seat. There is teaching from the Bible, usually brought by the minister, either in one single sermon or broken up into two or three parts interspersed by a song. After the teaching there is then a final song and an invitation to stay for refreshments in the hall after the service.
The first Sundays in March, June, September and December are known as 'Communion Sundays', where we celebrate and remember Jesus’ sacrifice for us on the cross. These services might be slightly different from usual but are by no means private – you are always welcome to join with us, whoever and whenever.
