What to Expect

If you are thinking of visiting you may have some questions about what it will be like. We hope this page will help to answer them and make your visit as pleasant as possible.

When should I arrive?

If you are visiting for the first time it is probably best to come to a Sunday Family Service, although you are welcome at any of our activities. We suggest arriving 10 or so minutes before the service begins. Come in through the double doors from the car park.

What should I wear?

Though we take worship seriously, the atmosphere at the church is very relaxed. People are friendly and there is no dress code. You’ll see some people in a suit and tie and others in a T-shirt.

What will happen?

The service will be led from the front by one of the church leaders. In our gatherings we pray to God and encourage and build one another up by singing hymns and songs. The central element of the service is listening to the Bible being read, explained and applied to life. We seek to worship God and do everything in a way that honours him.

What about children?DSC01676

We love having children with us! At a Family Service there are usually children from babies right up to teenagers. The whole church stays together for the first part of the service and then children (up to age 14) go to separate groups part way through. There is a creche for young children.

What will I have to do?

Nothing! We want you to feel at home with us; we won’t do anything to make you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed. Just sit and listen to what is said. Usually we stand to sing, and the service leader will explain when that is. You won’t be asked to say or do anything on your own.

Wheelchair access? Hearing loop?

Yes and yes! The building has level access and a disabled toilet. There is a loop system for hearing aid users.

 

Please contact us if you have questions that remain unanswered. We look forward to seeing you in the near future.
