Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details here) for our Sunday Service starting at 10:30am and also at 6:30pm. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team who will be wearing a Welcome lanyard.

We serve tea, coffee and biscuits after the 10:30am service. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.

Our Evening Service starts at 6:30pm

This is a time of prayer to seek God's heart for the church as well as local and global issues. There will be an opportunity to fellowship over a cup of tea or coffee following the prayer time.

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There are disabled toilets in the cafe area.

Our Morning Service

The main service begins at 10:30am with a warm welcome from one of our team members. Then follows a time of sung worship, led by our band. We typically have 2 or 3 songs lasting approximately 20 minutes. Sometimes a person might pray out loud or read a small passage from the bible. Sometimes people share things that they believe God is saying to the whole church family. This might seem strange the first time you hear it but it’s all part of our connecting with God. We then share news and notices, usually about what’s going on in the life of the church. One of our leaders will then give a sermon that is bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We then finish with a final worship song. Sometimes there is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.


What about my kids?

We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages:

  • Creche (0 months to 2 years). A space where you can take your little ones but still see and hear the main service.
  • Children's Service (2-11 years). A service catering for children aged 2-11 which runs concurrently with the Sunday morning service. A Parent or Guardian is required to accompany your children.
  • Young People (11-15 years). A Bible based learning and discussion group. 
  • Young People (15+ years) Stay in service.

Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. At the end of the notices someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their various groups. For the Children's Service we ask that one parent or guardian accompanies your children throughout.

The kids group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play.

On the first Sunday of the Month we have an All Together service where everyone stays in the main service to worship together. This is a family orientated service suitable for all ages. It is shorter in length, approximately 45 minutes, and includes a children's talk and activity.


Getting Connected

Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.

Serving and Volunteering

If you want to get involved in the life of the church and help us make Sundays run smoothly, you can sign up to serve on a team.
