Worship

Services

Our main service of worship is held on Sunday mornings at 11 am, led by the minister. On the first Sunday of each month, our service concludes with Holy Communion.

We also have a monthly, mid-week Taizé service of prayer and meditation on the second Tuesday of each month (see below).

Marriage and funeral services are held in our church by arrangement with the minister, as are baptisms.

 

Extending worship and learning

In addition to public worship, we hold two series of House Groups a year, one during Lent and one in the autumn. These are prepared by our Christian Education Committee which also plans special series of evening services involving speakers from outside the church. Our World Church Committee keeps us informed about world church issues, leading services twice a year and the Prayer Circle is also an important part of our fellowship.

 

Supporting people with particular needs

We genuinely wish to make everyone feel welcome to our church. We are aware that many people have particular needs and aim to respond by making provision so that they may access our services appropriately. Our church has:

  • a “loop” system for use by people with suitably equipped hearing aids
  • large print hymnbooks
  • large print copies of our Church Newsletter
  • a wheel chair access route to the church sanctuary
  • spaces for wheel chairs in the sanctuary
  • “accessible” toilets both at the back of the church and in the church halls
  • welcome cards to help newcomers to our church understand the services
  • members of our Sunday Duty teams are always glad to help anyone with particular needs.
