This is a relaxed service where all are welcome, with praise, singing, prayer and listening as the Bible is read and the Word of God taught. Bibles are provided at the door and the singing is led from the overhead screen. Refreshments are provided in Meeting Point after the service as a good opportunity for the church family and visitors to meet more informally. After the service an area in the church is set aside for quiet prayer either individually or with somebody who will be there available for you.
A Hearing Loop and large print service aids are available.
This service is usually a more meditative service, but the fourth Sunday in the month is our E-quip service at the early time of 5:30pm.

Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday morning and the third Sunday evening in each month.
Crèche is for preschool children. There will be age appropriate activities on a bible theme as well as toys to play with. Parents are welcome to leave their children with members of the crèche team or stay with them.
The Junior Church children stay in church for a short part of the start of the service before leaving for their age appropriate groups. By doing this we like to show them that they are part of the church. During the group time the leaders will teach the Christian message through games, songs, Bible stories and relevant art, crafts and activities.
When the children leave the service they go into groups for the following school years:
Creche - preschool / Reception
Junior Church - Reception through to year 6
K-os - Years 7 to 9
JAUL Year 10 and above
All our volunteers are DBS checked
Every Tuesday at 12.30pm we hold a short 30 minute praise and worship service led by various members and leaders of the local churches. After the service all are invited to continue fellowship over refreshments and light lunch in Meeting Point.
