Below are some of the main questions we are asked about what happens on a Sunday.
What happens in a typical service…?
At the heart of each of our morning/evening services is the
- reading of God's Word, the Bible, and the
- sermon – a short, 20 minute(ish), explanation of the Bible reading.
- sing some songs/hymns of praise
- pray for the needs of our church, community and the world
- confess and seek God's forgiveness for our sins
- remind ourselves of our core convictions as Christians as we say the Creed
afterwards enjoy refreshments – tea, coffee, juice, biscuits – and conversation
At services of Holy Communion we also share in a simple meal of bread and
wine – this simple, special act helps us remember the significance
of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. All who are Christians are
welcome to join us.
What will a visitor be asked to do…?
Don't worry, you won't be asked or expected to do anything you don't want to
do – for example sing, pray, stand up and introduce yourself, or give money.
What do people wear…?
Whatever you feel most comfortable wearing. Some wear jeans & t-shirts, others jacket & tie.
Who can receive Communion…?
We welcome to the Lord's Table any Christian who has been baptised and is a communicant member of a church
that subscribes to the doctrine of the Holy Trinity, and who is in good standing with their own church.
If you do not feel ready to receive communion either remain in your seat or come forward with everyone else,
but for a prayer of blessing.
Will there be a collection…?
We do not take a collection during our services. We are grateful for any contributions to the work of the
church, but don't want any visitors to feel under pressure to give. There is a plate on your way in or out of
church should you wish to make a donation.
What are the disabled facilities like…?
The church is easily accessible for people in wheelchairs through the front doors. There are disabled toilet facilities
We have a hearing aid loop and large print service books are available on request.
