Sundays

On Sunday

We begin at 10.00am each Sunday and end promptly at noon, although this sounds a long time, the morning is split in to three sections:

  • 10.00 – 10.50am Service
  • 10.50 – 11.20am Tea and coffee
  • 11.20 – 12.00pm Second session

The service is carefully structured, but informal in style. Much of the content has a traditional feel, but we care a great deal about inclusivity of wording and thoughtfulness of content.

Breaking for refreshments is as important as any other part of our time together; we value the opportunity to talk and catch up. It is also a great opportunity to get to know any new faces!





The Second Session can include a huge variety of topics and styles; visiting speakers, quiet reflection, topical discussion, music and art, or just spending time chatting together.

Feel free to come as you are and join us for as long as you are able, there are no expectations of you – we understand you will want to see how it all feels.

 

CHILDREN

Children of all ages are welcome in the service. They generally leave part way through to follow their own Junior Church classes, but occasionally remain and join in the whole service. Having joined in with everyone else for refreshments (especially biscuits!) there is a supervised activity during the Second Session.

 

MONTHLY PATTERN
On the first Sunday of every month we celebrate Communion together in the service, anyone who is aware of the significance of this event is welcome to participate with us.On the second Sunday of every month we have a simple Bread and Soup lunch after the Second Session. We warmly invite anyone to join with us at 12.15pm as we share a meal with friends.
 

What’s Happening on Sundays – What, Where, Who, When?

 The Second Session (Activities) can include a huge variety of topics and styles, here is a sample:

  • Listen and talk:  Talks and discussion on topics of current concern, sometimes lead by a visiting speaker.
  • Taking it further: The preacher leads further reflection and discussion to take further the themes raised in the sermon.
  • Did you see …..?  We look or listen together at some popular  topical item – a TV soap, a film, a book, music, whatever.
  • Singing for All: A chance to enjoy singing together and learn new songs for future worship. Not a choir!
  • Feedback: An opportunity to discuss a previous week’s act of worship with those leading it. Partly to assist those who lead our worship in knowing how their efforts were received, and partly an opportunity to discuss further topics raised.
  • Our Stories: A member of the congregation talks about some aspect of their life and work.
