Is Church a new experience for you?
What to expect at a service
At all of our services, we spend time worshipping God with the best of contemporary songs and older hymns, hearing about God’s mission in our community, our nation, and internationally, praying together, reading the Bible, and then hearing a sermon to help us understand and apply God’s word to our lives. There may be a time of communion (Breaking of bread) and a time of ministry for people’s individual prayer needs. We often have live bands and workshop singers.
How long does it last?
The service normally lasts between 1.5 to 2 hours
Do I have to dress especially?
No: Please come as you are, just suitably dressed.
Do I have to join in?
No: You are welcome to sit, watch, and listen. You can join in as much or as little as you feel comfortable with.
Can I bring a dog?
Yes – we just ask that you sit on the left side of the church or near the front and the dog doesn’t scratch are ancient pews. Well-behaved dogs are welcome you may need to clean up any mess, made by your dog.

Accessible Bibles: if you would like to borrow a bible during your visit we have large print, clear read, youth bibles, and children’s bibles. Various translations and they can be found at the back of the church in the corner cupboard.
Portable Hearing Loop: we have a portable hearing loop if you wish to use this please speak to the sound technician at the back of the church who will provide this for you. We have a monitor to help visually impaired visitors to join in with the singing.
Mobility and health support: should you become unwell during the service please put your arm up or ask someone to go to the sound desk to alert the staff. We have a number of first aiders on site who will help you and the medical staff at times. We have slide sheets and handing belts should a situation arise requiring assistance to be freed from the pews.
Coming without a career: if you have care support needs such as support to mobilize once in the building and you do not have carer support provided please alert us in advance of your intention to visit so we can arrange for support for you.
We appreciate that we are not able to have rails everywhere to enable your independence so we would rather be ready to support should the need arise.
Adapted drinking vessels & communion cups: should you wish to have refreshments after the service with us please alert us if you require a beaker, anti-spill mug, glass with handle, etc. We will happily sort it for you. Our communion cups for the juice are small if you require a glass or a beaker for ease of use, please alert us pre-service and we will sort this for you.
