Online Services

Both the 08:45 and 10:45 services are streamed live each week on our YouTube channel with the exception of the 08:45 service on the 4th Sunday.  Please tune in 10 minutes before the start time to see the notices for the weekYouTube logo.  You can also catch up with previous week’s services also on our YouTube channel. So join us online!

 

8:45 am service

The 8:45 am service is a structured but friendly service based on Common Worship. It includes traditional hymns, more modern songs and a sermon. Holy Communion is celebrated each week and refreshments are served after the service when people who attend the 8:45 am service can also meet people arriving for the 10.45 am service.

 

10.45 am Gathering

1045amThe 10.45 am service has particular emphasis towards families with children and young people.

On the first Sunday of each month the children and young people start in their groups and then we get back together at 11:45 to celebrate communion together.

On the second, third and fifth Sundays we start the service all together and the children and young people leave for their groups at 11:10

Groups for young people aged 0-13 run most weeks during the year and on the first and third Sunday the service is interpreted into sign language for Deaf people. This is an essential part of the church’s worship, enabling access to worship for Deaf people and enriching the life of the church.

 

6 pm Encounter

This is held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays and is a time of fellowship, worship and prayer.  It is lead by one of our worship leaders and is a real opportunity to enter into God’s presence, worship and receive prayer ministry.

 

Go 4th Sunday

On the 4th Sunday each month we have launched Go 4th Sunday.  On this Sunday there will not be a 10:45 service and the 08:45 service will be a shorter, simpler service of Holy Communion.

Go 4th Sunday allows time for us to interact with our community and will be all about seeking to prayerfully invest in, nurture, and grow community, whether that be within church community, local community, family community or any other form of community.

 

Interpreted Services

The 10.45 services are interpreted into sign language on the 1st and 3rd Sundays each month. The interpreters work with the service leaders to make the services as accessible as possible for deaf people. We often use percussion instruments that give a sense of vibration as an alternative means of worship through rhythm.

Other church events – for example, Christmas and Easter services may also be interpreted.

For more information contact Margaret Metcalfe or Peter Benson via the church office.
