We want visitors to feel very welcome. Here are answers to some common questions.
Do I need to believe the Bible or be a good person to come along?
No. We all have questions, doubts, and troubles. We come to church to learn more about the God of the Bible who changes lives.
What do I wear?
Wear what you feel comfortable in; we are very informal. If your child wants to wear a favourite superhero costume, that’s fine! People are not required to wear facemasks in church.
Is there parking?
The church has a small car park with 5 spaces directly in front of the church. There is plenty of free street parking around the church. For more details on travel, click here.
What is there for children to do?
Children are an important part of our church family. We have Sunday groups for children over 4 years old with Bible teaching and fun activities during term time. The groups are run by church members in line with our Safeguarding Policy. There is an area in church with toys for preschool children to use. We have an all-age service on the first Sunday of the month which is child friendly.
What happens during the services?
Usually we sing Christian songs, have prayers, Bible readings, talk and, sometimes, special presentations. There’s more on our midweek activities on our Events page.
Will I be asked to do anything?
No. Words for the service will be projected on a screen at the front so we can participate if we wish – just like karaoke!
How long are the services?
Our services are typically around an hour long. Our all-age service – which are usually on the first Sunday of the month and are when the children stay in church – are around 45 minutes long.
What do I do in a Communion Service?
Baptised Christians are welcome to share in the bread and wine, or you can go forward for a prayer or stay in your seat. (During the pandemic, we follow special guidelines to prevent infection).
Will I be asked for money?
No. Donations are welcome but we don’t take collections or ask visitors for money.
Can I talk to someone about questions, problems or be prayed for?
Of course. Have a chat to one of the Welcome Team on the door or the Vicar after the service.
What happens after the service?
Free tea and coffee are normally served in the Lounge area next door. Please stick around and meet people. People leave whenever they wish.
What disabled facilities does the church have?
There is flat access to the church and hall through the central link door. The building has a disabled toilet with baby changing area, and a loop fitted in the church for hearing aids. Large print service materials can be made available if requested in advance.
What Covid measures are in place?
We are following the latest guidelines. Please stay at home if you are showing symptoms of Covid. People are not currently required to wear facemasks.
