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 on Queensberry Street (details here
) for our Sunday Service. Our car park can be accessed via Blankney Street. The service starts at 10:30am. 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.
There is wheelchair access via our car park entrance on Blankney street, 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 just inside the entrance.
The main service begins at 10:30am with a warm welcome from our service leader, and will finish sometime between 11.45-12noon.
You can expect the service to include times of sung worship, prayer, readings from the Bible, a talk and time to reflect on how we apply what we're learning to our every day lives. We will also share updates, news and notices to help everyone keep up to date with what is happening in church life.
Our sung worship will be lead by a group of musicians and will include a mix of hymns and more contemporary worship songs. Sometimes a person might pray out loud, read a passage from the Bible, or share something they believe God is saying to the whole church community. This might seem strange the first time you hear it but it’s all part of our connecting with God.
We believe the Bible plays an important role in learning more about who God is and what it means to follow him. So each week we take time to explore a passage of the Bible together, usually by listening to a talk from one of our church team. We want what we're learning to impact our everyday lives so we'll spend some time thinking about how we can put what we've heard into practice.
We will spend time praying together, for our own needs, as well as local, national and international events. There is also an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.
We share communion together once a month, usually on the second Sunday of the month.
We want people of all ages to feel welcomed and included in church life. Find out more about activities for children and young people here
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 home 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. If you are interest in joining a group, we can put you in touch with a home group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
