Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings, regardless of age, ethnicity, background or belief. If you’re planning to come along for the first time, we’ll be pleased to see you and here’s what to expect..
Sunday Services begin at 10.30am and 3pm and usually last between an hour and an hour and a quarter. You do not need to wear ‘Sunday best’ - we don’t judge anyone according to how they are dressed. You’ll be greeted at the door and given a hymnbook, and a Bible if you haven’t brought one.
There is no reserved seating and you can sit where you feel most comfortable. The building is wheelchair accessible and has an induction loop system for the benefit of hearing-aid wearers.
Our services usually include singing, a Bible reading or two, prayers and a sermon (a talk based on part of the Bible), generally led by one person on each occasion. We usually stand up to sing and remain seated for everything else. There’s no obligation to join in with the singing and you won’t be asked to pray out loud, come forward or to introduce yourself to everyone. We don't pass round a collection bag for donations.
After the morning service, tea or coffee is served and shortly afterwards there is also a light lunch to which all are invited. This is a good opportunity to get to know us better and to ask questions – but only if you want to – no one will force you to talk about what you’ve heard.
On Wednesday evening there is usually a slightly more in depth study of the Bible, sometimes involving discussion, and a time of open prayer but again, only those who wish to comment or pray out loud do so.
