Regular Sunday Services - December


All Age Worship
This service provides a monthly opportunity for God’s family to meet together, learn together, pray and worship together with no one age group feeling that they are any more, or any less important than another. Children of al ages are encouraged to attend and to take part.

Morning Prayer in Church and separate children/youth activities

This Sunday morning service is informal yet orderly, often following the liturgy of Common Worship. We seek to be led by the Holy Spirit. At a certain point in the service  members of the congregation are invited to share what God is doing in their lives or a prayer concern if they wish to do so.

School age  children begin in Church but leave after the first hymn to join their groups. Pre-schoolers are welcome to go too as long as a parent or carer accompanies them.
