What can I expect on my first visit?
A warm welcome awaits.

There is a loop system to assist the hearing impaired.
We have members of the church who are DBS certified, and are able to sit with vulnerable adults during the service.

What do your services entail?
Worship starts at 10.30am every Sunday. Our services are about an hour long, reflective and prayer led.
Services are taken by our minister, members of the church worship team or a visiting minister.
Hymns are sung from Rejoice and Sing hymn book.
Hymn numbers are displayed on the board in the front on the right hand side of the pulpit.
The page numbers for the Bible passages are displayed on the left hand side. Our Bible passages are read from the New International Version.
We finish the service with the saying of the Grace to each other:
“May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us all, now and forever. Amen.”
What will the congregation be like?
We are an all inclusive church.
Members and regular attenders are from different backgrounds and are at different stages in our spiritual journeys.
We meet together to worship, share fellowship, and celebrate the Good News.
We are here to help and encourage each other through life, good times and bad.
We believe in God our maker and Jesus Christ, his Son, whom He sent to die for our sins, and the Holy Spirit.
All members have a say in how the church is run. Decisions are made during members’ meeting every other month.
You do not have to be a member to attend meetings
When is Communion?
Communion is served on the Second Sunday of month.
However there are special services during the year when communion is taken. Dates are announced in the magazine.
After the bread is broken and wine poured, the serving elders bring these over the congregation.
You can discreetly indicate to the serving elder if you do not wish to partake.
What about Offertories and Donations
Offertories are voluntary.
Collections go towards running the church and to charitable organisations.
Regular donations can be made through standing orders, or using envelopes that allow us to receive gift aid on donations.
How can I become a member?
If you would like to become a member of the church please let an existing member or an elder know.
