Coffee, tea, and biscuits are served in the downstairs hall from 10:00am onwards, where you will receive a very warm welcome. The Morning Worship services starts in the main hall upstairs at 10:30am with a time of sung worship, singing from a collection of both modern contemporary and older worship songs and hymns.
For those with younger children, there is a play area within the main hall where they can go during the service, or alternatively choose some toys, puzzles or drawing to take back to their seats. Just before the children leave for Sunday School, we all sing a children’s worship song together, with the accompanying actions, of course! After the children leave, most weeks we share together in the Breaking of Bread (sometimes referred to as the Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion).
A sermon is then preached in the main hall and this usually lasts about 30 minutes, before we close with a song and prayer, when the Elders and others are available for prayer ministry. We place a high focus on the Word of God (the Bible) and the preaching of the Word of God, but we also recognise the place the Holy Spirit has in challenging us, convicting us, and shaping us to be more like Jesus. Therefore, it is important that we make space for us to respond, following the preaching of God’s Word.
In our Morning Worship service, we preach through a book of the Bible, working through it chapter by chapter, or we look at a particular subject in detail over a period of a few weeks. Below are some of our recent series:
