A warm welcome to our services

our youngsters

Younger members of our congregation join us for the first part of the service, then leave us to take part in their own worship activities in Sparx.  Sparx is about discovering the Bible and all it has to offer though a series of fun activities - drama, games, stories and craft. Sparx usually finishes at 1130/ 1145am for refreshments.

If Communion is taking place, then Sparx join us at the end of the service so that they have the opportunity to join us all at the communion rail.

All Sparx leaders have undergone a DBS check.  Further information can be found about Sparx by clicking on the image above.

Congregation members enjoying coffee together

Special services:

from time to time, we have services which are a little different from the norm, such as Cafe Church and All Age Worship.  

Cafe Church takes place in the evening and sees the church re-arranged into its cafe style, light refreshments are served and we have a topical speaker instead of a minister or lay preacher.  There is always an opportunity to discuss the topic of the day with others and the speaker takes questions from the congregation.

The next Cafe church will be - to be announced...

We also have All Age Worship several times a year, which is a shorter, more interactive service, involving all the congregation - the children do not leave us but take a part in the worship.  Often with dramas, activities, discussions and our live band, it is ideal for families and those new to the church.

The next All Age Worship will be  - to be announced...
