Worship

In our gathering for worship each Sunday morning, we seek to demonstrate the love and hospitality of God to everyone who joins us, from different backgrounds and all walks of life. Before the service starts we usually sing some modern worship songs to encourage an atmosphere of uplifting praise, as members gather for the service. Our services include singing further hymns and songs & praying together for our world, the Church and for individuals known to us. We spend time exploring passages and themes from the Bible and considering ways of applying lessons from these these in our everyday lives. We share communion, bread and wine, almost every Sunday, reflecting on the story and centrality of Jesus and his invitation to remember and honour him in all that we say and do.

Our Sunday morning worship is for all ages and includes a children’s group called Kaleidoscope. We value the time we spend all together, but sometimes the children leave for their own activities,  which include music, craft activities, using modern technology and sports. The children’s activities aim to encourage them to consider that there is a deeper level of meaning in their lives and to explore matters of faith in a way that is accessible to children of all ages.

We are supported in our worship by a musical worship group that we call our ‘Praise Team’. This group meet on the Tuesday evening before the first Sunday of each month and practice music for the service, this session is then followed by a time of singing praise songs together. Singing together is a way in which we believe we can come closer to God and feel the presence of His Holy Spirit.

From time to time, we gather in our chapel and in members’ homes for more informal worship and reflection, which we refer to as ‘Grateful Heart’ times. These times are devoted to singing hymns and songs of praise, sharing our faith stories, affirming the value of all humanity in God’s sight, seeking spiritual strength to face the challenges of life, and celebrating the life that was offered to us by God through his son – Jesus Christ.

The Chapel – During daytime hours in the week, at certain specified times, our chapel is opened up.  If you wish find a quiet, tranquil place for contemplation, meditation, prayer or just some ‘peace and quiet’ this is the place for you!
