Sunday Services

We believe our worship services are inclusive and accessible. People are free to be themselves.
On most Sundays we have two morning services, which are different but complementary. We value our traditions but are open to fresh ways to express and share our faith.

The 9am Service
The earlier service tends to be more traditional in its form of worship. A range of modern liturgy is used along with a mixture of hymns and modern worship songs. Holy Communion is shared each week.

The 10.45 Service
The later service is more contemporary in its style and most families with children attend this service. This service is more informal, combining prayer, praise and teaching and does not always include formal liturgy.

Children and young people are fully involved in services and also have their own groups:

Pray and Play Age 0-4 For babies and pre-schoolers (and their parents and carers if they wish to stay). This takes place in the room at the back of church.
Sunday Club Age 4-11 This takes place in our church halls, adjacent to the main church building.
Level Up Age 11-14 This group meets in the Welcome Centre or in the ‘Level Up Lounge’

Once a month there is an all-age service, when children remain in the service. There is also a monthly communion service.

Music at both services is led by worship groups using guitar, keyboard, drums and other instruments. We are blessed in having a number of talented worship leaders who take responsibility for this aspect of our services.
