There is a choice of time and style service. Sunday at 9.15, Sunday at 10.30 and Alternate Thursdays at 10.00. 

Sunday 09.15 Peaceful Calm Space

Sometimes you just need a space where you are guided through Christian worship, shaped over 1,800 years yet relevant to now. This is that space. Led by a team of clergy and trained lay people, the service includes modern liturgy, hymns and prayers. The 2nd and 4th Sundays have communion. The service lasts about 45 minutes. The church organ is played in this service.

Sunday 10.30 Main Sunday Service

We start together, adults and children - with child-friendly songs and an introduction to the theme for the day. Then the children go with their leaders to other spaces on site for teaching and activities suited to their ages and designed to build up their faith.

The rest of us continue with contemporary sung worship, teaching and prayer.

There is a corner for babies and toddlers and a toilet with nappy changing table.  

Communion is on the 1st and 3rd Sunday and on the 2nd Sunday of each month we all stay in the Main Service along with our Scouts, Cubs and Beavers. Parents and carers are always welcome.

A service lasts between 60 and 80 minutes depending on if there is communion.

Hang Around After 10.30

There is a real buzz in the Community Rooms with refreshments together after this service. It's a great space to build friendship and connect.  

Thursday Morning Communion 10.00  and Open Church

A simple quiet service which takes place in the chancel (the part of the church near the alter). After this the church stays open for anyone who wants to stay or visit.
