Coronavirus Updates

A Message From Rev David King

“The current coronavirus outbreak is both deeply unsettling, but also a reminder of what a precious comfort it is to know the Lord Jesus.  We know that God has not abandoned us, that he remains in control and is caring for us, and that even the very worst outcome, though a hard path, is the way to eternal life for those who put their trust in Jesus.”

What’s On

Sun 27 Sep 2020 10:30am
Time: 10.30am
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.
Sun 27 Sep 2020 7:30pm
4:Twelve (Year 10 - Year 13)
Time: 7.30pm - 9pm every Sunday
Where: church hall

4:Twelve meets at 7.30pm every Sunday in term time. We spend 90 minutes hanging out, playing group games, eating whatever snacks are around and learning more about what it means to be a Christian.  Anyone in school years 10-13 is welcome to attend any of our meetings.  

Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, our youth gatherings might look a little bit different.  We are following government guidelines as outlined by the NYA to ensure we can all stay safe.
