Services / Worship

 

Sunday Morning Service

 

handshakeOur main act of worship is our Sunday morning service, which starts at 11am. The service is traditional but relaxed in style, with music provided by our organist and a flautist.

Our welcome team will greet you at the door, provide you with a Service Sheet and a Hymn Book and will be happy to help with any enquiries or questions you may have.

You are welcome to sit wherever you wish within the body of the church.

 

 

Intimations & Service Sheets

 

Intimations are included as part of the weekly Order of Service sheet and also expounded by our minister before each service.

Service sheets are available in standard or large print format.

Please ask the door steward if you would like a large print version.

Children join in the first part of the service and then go to Sunday School which meets in our church hall.

 

 

Praise

We generally sing from Songs of Fellowship and Mission Praise and large print copies of the words are available from the welcome team. The words of hymns are also projected onto a screen. There is an induction loop for anyone who is hard of hearing – hearing aids should be switched to the “T” position.

 

 

 

 

Bible Readings
