We realise that coming to a new church may be daunting, and you might have some questions about us. We want you to feel comfortable; here you will find information to give you a taste of who we are and what to expect.
Our welcome team is always on hand to greet you and answer any questions.
Sunday 10.15am – except second Sunday
Includes kids and youth work
Second Sunday at 10.15am
What To Expect
Our services are informal, and last approximately an hour and a half. You can wear whatever you are comfortable in; most people dress casually, but you can dress smartly if you want to! We mainly sing contemporary Christian songs, but also sing some traditional hymns.
Sundays at 10.15 – 11.45 am (except second Sunday)
Our morning service usually starts with songs, accompanied by our band. This is followed by a talk which lasts about 30 minutes, based on the Bible. It will be practical and relevant to our daily lives. Following the talk, we sing some more songs and there are opportunities to be prayed for.
Often members of the church will bring stories of how their faith has impacted their week, or words that God has given them for the church.
On the fourth Sunday of the month, we have communion, where we remember what Jesus did for us through his death and resurrection by sharing bread and non-alcoholic wine.
Second Sunday at 10.15am
On the second Sunday of the month, instead of our normal morning service, we meet for about 15 minutes at the church, then go our to bless our community in various practical ways. This could include litter picking on local estates, taking a service at the local elderly home, football or giving out flowers to passers-by. We then come back to church to share stories of how God has been working through us in our local community.
What About My Family?
A creche is available for babies and children up until the age of four. Children in reception – year 6 meet in the hall for their own activities. On the first Sunday of the month, they stay in the main service until just before the talk.
Young people from year 7 – 13, stay in the service until the talk, when they leave for their own activities.
Adults working with children and young people have done safeguarding training and are DBS checked.
Accessibility & Safeguarding
Our building was mainly built in the nineteenth century, but almost all areas are wheelchair accessible. We advise that you come in via the entrance from the Cofferidge Close Car Park, which is level access up a shallow slope. There is a disabled toilet available. Disabled parking spaces are opposite the church entrance.
We have an induction loop system installed for the hard-of-hearing.
A large print song sheet is available on request for those who find it difficult to read the large screen at the front.
Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults is a priority for us.
