We are a group of normal people who love and
believe in our Lord Jesus Christ and try to follow
his teaching and example in all that we do.
We consist of a wide range of different people from
all ages and different backgrounds. We have young
families, with many young children right up to more
elderly members in their 90's.
to arrive: If it's your first
visit then it's probably best to turn up around
10.20am. If you are driving then you'll need to
park on the road either in Silver Street or North
Street - the church does not have its own car park,
other than a small number of spaces on the pavement
at the Silver Street entrance. For directions to
reach us please see theContact Uspage. When you
arrive, you'll need to come to the North Street
entrance to get into the main church building
(the old part, rather than the more modern
extension). You'll be greeted on the door and
helped to find a seat if you need
to wear: Please wear
whatever you feel comfortable in - there is no need
to dress up specially and pretend to be someone
you're not. Shorts & T-shirts, jeans &
jumpers, jackets & ties are all absolutely
Both morning and
evening services are quite relaxed and informal,
though the morning service does tend to have more
structure to it. In both services, members of the
congregation are encouraged to participate, often
in times of open prayer. If you don't understand
anything please ask any one of us and we'll do our
best to explain what's going on.
Our morning service starts at 10.30am. On some
Sundays the music is predominantly played on the
organ, but on other weeks we have a small music
group. In a service we will spend time worshipping
God using both traditional hymns and modern songs.
We also have times of prayer, Bible readings and a
talk based on a passage from the Bible.
Children are present at the start of the service,
but go off to their own groups (Sunday Club) for
the latter part of the service. There are groups
for all ages and, whilst we are unable to offer a
supervised creche, we do have a room with toys
where parents can take their toddlers should it
become necessary during the service.
Our service will normally finish between 11.30 and
12.00, from which time teas, coffees, biscuits and
sometimes cakes are served. Please do join us for
coffee and get to know us a bit better.
Evening services start at 6.30pm and tend to finish
between 7.30 and 8.00pm. Again, teas and coffees
are served after the service to encourage
We hope that all we do - the worship, prayer,
talks, and the fellowship after the service - will
help to draw everyone closer to God.
those with disabilities:
Our church building is accessible for those in
wheelchairs, with ramps and disabled toilets. If
you need to bring a car right up to the church
front door, then this is possible - we have a small
turning area at the front of the church to help
with this. The words for all our songs are
projected onto the wall at the front of the church,
but we also provide printed and large-print copies
of words if you have a visual impairment - just ask
as you come in. We do have a hearing loop system.
All services are recorded and are made available on
CD for those unable to attend. In addition we
podcast sermons on the internet, which can be
downloaded or subscribed to if you have a computer
with an internet connection - see thepodcastpage.
