Where: Church Building
Lasts: just over an hour (at most 1¼ hours)
Our main gathering on a Sunday is this lively and welcoming service, in which we sing songs and hymns, listen to what God is saying to us through the Bible, and pray. It's fine just to come along and see what goes on, or join in as you feel like it (if you've not been in church before and aren't sure what to expect, have a look at our new to church page
On all but the first Sunday in the month adults and children alike start off together in church, but the children and young people (up to age 14) then go to their own groups after about 15 minutes. There's also a staffed creche running throughout the service, from about 10.15am, for under-3s. You can read more about our childrens' groups
On the first Sunday each month we have our Family Service (which is a little shorter, about 45 minutes), celebrating the full diversity of our church community by children and adults worshipping together for the whole service. The music and teaching content is intended to be suitable for all, and we expect a bit of noise! The uniformed groups (Scouts, Guides, and so on) also join us for these family services.
On the second Sunday of each month, we also include a celebration of Holy Communion (sharing some bread and wine together as a reminder of Jesus' death), which adds about an extra ten minutes to the service.

On Wednesdays we gather together at 6pm to eat a meal as big group. This is a brilliant time hanging out together sharing stories while eating great food! After the meal has finished we start our Bible Study. This is a brilliant opportunity for our youth to go deeper into scripture and discover more about what it means to follow Jesus. The Bible study always finishes at 7.30pm.
