What We Do
What to expect? Our services last for about 1¼ to 1½ hours. During that time we sing, pray, and most of all listen as the Bible is read and explained. We try to explain everything that happens so hopefully it won’t be too bewildering if you’re not used to church. Don’t worry, you won’t be asked to do anything embarrassing – we promise!
Twice a month, we share communion together. This is a special time for those who love and trust Jesus as their saviour. If you’re not quite sure where you stand on that one, we encourage you to sit and watch, but not to actually participate in that part of our service.
During morning services, a supervised crèche is available for babies & toddlers up to 3yrs. We also have Sunday School groups for ages 3-14. These groups leave partway through the morning service and all children are welcome to join them.
Children & Youth
Most of our groups only run during term time so check the church calendar to see what’s going on this week!
Tuesday Tots is from 9:30-11:30 at the church. It’s for newborns to 4 year-olds and their carers. It’s a friendly group with toys, crafts, singing, snack time and a lot of fun! 70p per week.
CYG is for KS3 & KS4 teens. There’s an Xbox, tuck shop, music, games etc. Sometimes there’s an outing to Laser Quest, bowling, or to the beach. We’ve even been known to go on camp together for a weekend! We meet every Thursday (7:30pm-9pm) during term time. 50p per week. Check the church calendar for dates. Email Julia for more information.
Every Wednesday, the church is open from 10am – 1pm for anyone to join us in our cafe area. Do pop in for a tea, coffee, cake and a chat!
Christianity Explored is an informal course for people who’d like to investigate Christianity, or just brush up on the basics. It explores who Jesus is, what his aims are, and what it means to follow him.
You won’t be asked to pray, sing or read aloud, and you can ask any questions you like. Or, if you prefer, you can just come along and listen. Christianity Explored has been around for over a decade now, and it’s been designed to suit different age ranges and people.

There are 3 small groups that are run in the church, which normally happen fortnightly. Very casual sessions as someone’s home where we meet together, study the bible, pray and generally support each other through life.
