Traditional Breaking of Bread Service
This service is a traditional, contemplative communion service. It is an hour devoted to remembering Jesus’ death and all that it means for us. The service starts with someone sharing a thought from the Bible which is then followed by open worship, in which people in the congregation contribute Bible readings, hymns and prayers. During this service someone will give thanks for the bread and wine which will then be distributed.
Between the Breaking of Bread service and the All Age Service there is tea and coffee served along with biscuits and cake. This offers a great time of informal, relaxed fellowship where new people can be greeted and friendships can be deepened.
Contemporary All Age Service
This is our largest service that sees everyone gather together to sing God’s praise, seek God’s face in prayer and listen to God’s Word preached. It is fairly informal. The service will be led by one of our church members who will guide the congregation through the various parts of the service. The music is helped by a great band of gifted musicians who play a nice mix of both old hymns and new songs. The sermon is about 30 minutes long, and usually part of a series where we seek to understand what God is saying to us through His Word and what it means for our lives today. After the service there is no need to rush away as there is further opportunity to chat, share and pray together.
Young Person's Lunch
After the morning service during term time there is lunch for students and young people. This lunch is prepared by different members of the congregation and offers the students and young people a hearty meal and further opportunity to eat and share together. We also have regular lunches to which the whole church is invited.
The evening service is a slightly more relaxed service than the morning. It offers a chance for more reflective worship and more in depth Bible teaching. The service is led by a member of the worship team or congregation and the sermon is generally one of a series going through a book of the Bible or a series on Christian living.
