Sadly, given the announcement of a month-long lockdown from November 5th, our services in the school have been suspended again. We hope to be back in the building on Sunday 6th December - keep checking back for updates!

We continue to meet on Zoom from 10:45am on Sundays (link below).

We are also following the rest of the National Church of England in keeping some time for prayer on Thursdays. This will be 8:00 - 8:30pm, also using the link below.

 

We use the following Zoom details for our services:

 

When we are back in building after lockdown, this will be our pattern: 

Our services will be all-age for while we get used to a new way of worshipping and we will make sure everyone who comes will feel safe. We hope to re-introduce refreshments and Holy Communion over the coming weeks as well.

It would be really helpful to book on each week in advance: click here to do that. You are really welcome to come if you do not book, but please be aware that we have limited space in the building.

If you would prefer to join us online, we will hold Evening Prayer every Sunday at 6:30pm. 

 

To get an idea of what our services looked like before the Covid-19 pandemic, have a read of this:

Our services are quite informal but follow a pattern. We begin with singing a few songs with all the words projected onto a screen.

We have three children’s groups called Puddles (for under 5’s), Splash (for 5-9’s) and Surfers (for 10-14’s). After the songs the children will leave for their respective groups. If you bring children with you and they would like to join a group, just follow the crowd. Otherwise they may stay in the hall and we can provide some toys for them.

Once the children are settled in their groups we have our Bible reading and some teaching. The teaching slot will sometimes include questions for us all to think about and maybe discuss with our neighbours. We understand this could feel a bit strange on a first visit but nobody will mind if you just want to listen.

After the teaching someone will lead us in prayer or on the 2nd Sunday of each month we will share Holy Communion. All are welcome to come forward and receive bread and wine. We offer non-alcoholic wine and gluten-free bread if that is your preference. If children are in the habit of receiving communion we welcome them too, otherwise bring them with you and we will pray a blessing for them.

We don’t take a collection during the service and visitors are not expected to contribute to this church. However, there is a collection box near the main door should anyone wish to make an offering.

Our service ends with a final song and then all are invited to stay for refreshments in the Community Room.

We have baby changing facilities if required.
