8am

Holy Communion.

The 8am is a quieter service for those who like to start the day with communion.

The service comes from Common Worship and includes a sermon. 

 

10:30am

Our 10:30am service attracts people from all ages and backgrounds. We start the service all together and then children and young people (ages 0-14 or school years 0-9) are invited out for different groups that include worship, games, teaching and prayer.

The service has contemporary and traditional elements, including worship led by our band. After each service our prayer team in available. The first Sunday of every month is Holy Communion.

Everyone is invited to stay for tea and coffee after the service. If you are new, we have a welcome desk at which someone will be happy to bring you a drink, answer any questions your might have and generally get to know you!

6:30pm

Our 6:30pm service offers a mixture of different styles. This service has a more contemporary style that offers worship led by our evening band, a bible-based sermon and opportunities to pray.

Twice a month on the second and fourth Sunday our youth take over the running of the evening service offering a modern and relaxed worship service. For more information please visit the youth page.

The third Sunday of the month is a Holy Communion service that also offers prayer with a specific focus on healing for those who wish to receive it.

Each service offers tea and coffee beforehand, starting at 6pm. The Gathering services additionally offer cake!
